HUGE CONGRATULATIONS to the recent graduates from Kepler in Rwanda!

Kepler enables talented people in Rwanda to get a U.S.-accredited Bachelor’s degree while also developing the skills they need to start their careers and become leaders in their fields. A few years ago, Kepler expanded its programme to Kiziba refugee camp, creating the world’s first university programme for people living in a refugee camp! The Kepler programme in Kiziba opens a window of hope that education can provide a life beyond the camp.

We’ve been supporting the programme since its beginning, and our CEO, Per Heggenes, had the proud honour of speaking at last week’s graduation ceremony. He told them, “All of you graduates here today are the critical thinkers and creative minds who will help Rwanda grow and be a better place for the many tomorrow.”

Please help us congratulate the graduates and wish them the very best for a successful future!
