This summer, Nadine Iradukunda, a senior at Ashesi University, teamed up with fellow Mastercard Foundation Scholar, Marie Aimee Nirere, to create Healthy Us, a social venture to increase the well-being of orphans in Rwanda through a nutritional program.

The program focused on building kitchen gardens at Hope for Life orphanage to grow fruits and vegetables, including mushrooms, carrots, passion fruits, pineapples, and tomatoes, which are rich in protein and provide a balanced diet. They hope to expand the venture in the next two years to help orphanages across the country to support even more children.
