JOURNEY

    • September 8, 2022 – Dan shared the biggest changes in his life since the end of the COVID restrictions: “After the COVID-19 restrictions, I have learned a lot of things from TNHF leadership workshops! I have learned how to become a good servant leader and I am empowered to be the change that I need! Through TNHF trainings I gained new people!”

Dan B’S CIRCLE

BIO

Dan is 15th in a family of 20 children. His father is 88 years old and had three marriages. In the past, Dan’s family had many resources, but then the family lost several cows that they depended on. After that, life was not easy until recently.  No one in the family graduated; only two of Dan’s siblings finished secondary level and some never attended school. Many of Dan’s older brothers and sisters were born into exile in Uganda.  

Dan’s family faced many challenges when it came to schooling. His family lacked money for school fees, which has been a huge challenge, but Dan is hopeful. Dan’s family was often unable to provide school supplies, which was hard on Dan’s studies. Food was also hard to come by and posed a challenge as “you can’t study well without food.” 

Currently, Dan is studying Agroforestry at the University of Rwanda. Dan’s dream is to work with government and international bodies who are in charge of environmental and nature conservation to use agroforestry practices in maintaining nature, as well as sustainable food production. Dan hopes this will also help his family and society. Dan wants to be a good leader in this field and also a good researcher. 

Dan enjoys having conversations with different people and engaging in worship.
