I am at the beginning of a lifelong career of working and putting myself out of work for the benefit of others.
I just returned from one year of living and working in Rwanda, a tiny country in East Africa. Rwanda is a poor country, but also a beautiful place with a whole lot of kind, intelligent, hard-working people that I have fallen in love with. I am returning so I can volunteer my time and skills to organizations who are working to help Rwandans thrive and succeed on their own, instead of depending on relief organizations to give them what they need. I also have independent projects I am working on like promoting resource- and idea-sharing between helping organizations in Rwanda. But I need a little help right now to get back to where I need to be and to have a little extra cash in case of emergencies. I would be incredibly grateful for anything you might be able to contribute!
