Rwanda Gatekeeper Trip
Gatekeeper Editor’s Trip to Rwanda
I will be reporting from Rwanda this November along with 11 editors and journalists as part of the two-week long International Reporting Project’s Gatekeeper Editor Trip for Fall 2011.
It goes without saying that this will likely be one of the most interesting trips anyone from the 3p team has attended and I’m extremely honored to participate. Our group will be meeting with a host of organizations, academics and politicians to discuss many aspects of the post-genocide reconstruction of Rwanda, and development in general.
Although the trip will cover a variety of topics, I’ll be delving into such areas as sustainable development, micro-enterprise, eco-tourism, and coffee.
I’ll be doing my best to write a dispatch as close to daily as possible, and welcome your questions and feedback!
