“If you dream of something that can break boundaries, Rwanda is the place to be.”
That was the message from Her Excellency Mathilde Mukantabana, ambassador of the Republic of Rwanda to the United States, to students at the Kelley School of Business on IUPUI’s campus.
Indiana University faculty and staff met with the ambassador during her recent visit to Indianapolis that included stops at universities and meetings with city leaders and community groups. The Ambassador’s visit was hosted by The Sagamore Institute.
“Africa offers opportunities students may not have thought about. When they say ‘Africa Rising,’ it’s true. Rwanda’s economy is growing; we have resources and able leadership there,” said Mukantabana. “We have many people coming to Rwanda to learn how we were able to build up a nation coming out of total destruction, to now say that Rwanda has a lot to share. Our economy is growing, and we have good governance and promotion of democracy.”
