About Rwanda

Quick note 

Rwanda is a country located in East Africa, more than one millions of people lives there, Actuary the economics based on Agriculture and livestock ,fishing and Trade,back to the history it was a big country before colonization as well after the congress happened in Europe and defeated Germany ,they agreed to subdivide in a small country, this led to genocide where many refuges escaped to other countries.

Indeed the leaders of that time tried to expand Rwanda so that they could develop,

The Rwandan people live in harmony and eager to develop the country, as well to innovate and create opportunity,

Now the history could be the fact that the civil war happening between the East Africa countries (e.g. DRC) is a trigger to the negative and positive impact of civil war, My suggestion on what is happening today is that the imaginary board of Rwanda today could be changed to the original boards of last time in the History, that could be working team to develop the world in the different aspect.

Dear World, We are NOT Hotel-Rwanda: Rwanda Today is Peaceful, Developing, and Progressive.

I am from RWANDA! A beautiful country in the East African Region.

I am very proud to be Rwandan. Wherever I go, live or work, I take the Rwandan pride with me. However, one of the perks of being Rwandan in the diaspora, is the questions you get asked when you tell people that you are from Rwanda. The majority of the people I meet do not know where Rwanda is on the map. Even if they know something about Rwanda, 9 out of 10, is the Rwandan genocide in 1994. So, you can imagine how many of my conversations start.

“ You are from Rwanda? OMG, I have never met anybody from Rwanda before. But I have watched the movie, Hotel-Rwanda. That was some fucked up sh*t. How is it over there today? Is your family okay? Are you Tutsi or Hutu?”

Depending on the setting and the timing of the conversation, some of conversations can really be awkward. Over the years, I used to simply lie about where I was from to avoid any further questions, especially if I knew I not have enough time to explain. But today, with pride and honor, I do say that I am from Rwanda and proceed to explain and answer any questions.

I used to shy away from giving too many details depending on the scenario. However, today I do usually take the time to explain; whether be in professional conferences or any other meetings. This is why I have started writing about Rwanda and why I am very proud of my country and what we have achieved for the past 24 years; from a failed state to a peaceful and a prosperous country, what the media has called an “economic and political miracle”. Today, even if I don’t have time to explain, I simply share my articles to give an overview of what Rwanda is today, our future potential and what we can offer to the world. It has saved me lots of time and effort. I love it!

Rwanda wants to be seen as a vibrant economy with potential to attract tourists and foreign direct investments. As Rwandans, we acknowledge our past, but we don’t want to be determined by it.

We don’t want to live on any one’s mercy or pity.
We want to be a self-sustainable city where investment and business rules.
Kigali is amazing city on the rise. Rwanda is a country on the move. Rwandans are determined to build their country together with unity and peace. Didier Champion
