Rwanda’s newest group of health volunteers were sworn in on July 18th by US Ambassador David Koran during a ceremony at his Kigali home. After ten weeks of training in the district of Kamonyi, the volunteers have now moved to sites across Rwanda. They received a brief introduction to Stomp Out Malaria during their pre-service training and have been given the responsibility of assessing the state of malaria at their sites through their Community Health Assessments. They will receive further technical training from the Stomp team in October.
The volunteers are pictured above with Country Director Steve Miller and Ambassador Koran. Join us in welcoming them to the Peace Corps Rwanda family! The next group of trainees, in the education sector, will arrive in September.
