Rwanda Institute This Summer!



ThinkImpact is excited to announce that applications are being accepted for a 6-week, Institute on Social Innovation in Rwanda. This Institute is being led by Griff Ashooh, ThinkImpact Alum 2012.

Participants will learn about social innovation and international development while working alongside community members as equal partners in the Innovation Process.

In Griff’s words, “the tangible benefits (building my resume, getting field experience) were obvious, but the structure of ThinkImpact’s Institute allowed me to critique and mold my own worldview….living with the people that I was working with allowed me to develop friendships and connections in Kenya that I wouldn’t have made through a “traditional” summer program. My summer with ThinkImpact helped me grow as an individual and as a student of international development, and I can’t wait to be a part of the company again this summer in Rwanda!”

Program Details
June 27-August 12, 2016
$3600 plus airfare
Application deadline is May 15, 2016
