by Abra Bennett
In a twist of fate, Walla Walla Community College is lending a hand in helping to shape the future of Rwanda.
Since last spring Walla Walla has been home to seven Rwandan students: Eliane Wibabara, Grace Ingabire, Sarah Benimana, Sandrine Iradukunda, Ornella Usanase, Aline Uwase, and Ariane Kangabo.
All are enrolled at the college, studying soil science, irrigation technology, precision agriculture and water conservation. All seven are graduates of the Gashora Girl’s Academy of Science and Technology near Kigali, Rwanda’s capital city.
