BioDan grew up in a small village in Eastern Rwanda where most families depend on farming for food. As the oldest of seven children, his focus was on setting a good example for his brothers and sisters by studying hard and supporting his family.
As a teenager, Dan discovered that one of the primary challenges to his family’s agricultural life was lack of access to information on the internet. To solve this problem he is going to school to study Electronics and Telecommunication Engineering. His goal is to bring the internet to remote places, giving rural farmers access to weather data and agricultural information to improve their harvests and their lives.
In his spare time, Dan is a member of his church choir and prayer group leader. He is also a part of Peace and Reconciliation Club and Toastmasters!
