Two years ago, I applied for the Impact Week in Kenya with the motivation to learn and apply Design Thinking in Africa. Ever since I have experienced much more than I ever thought would be possible. One Week of learning experience has expanded to more than two years in a row. A few weeks ago, I had the honore to join the second independently organized Impact Week in Kibera, Kenya – what a success!
Finally the Impact Week has started!!
Over the weekend team Rwanda grew from about 50 participants of the Train-the-Trainer to more than 100 students, participating in the teams and who were eager to develop ideas and create their countries future actively. Finally, after intense weeks of preparation and two days of training the new trainers from Rwanda, Kenya, Austria, Belgium, Switzerland and Germany, on Monday morning everybody was ready and excited to kick of the Impact Week!
After two exciting but also quite exhausting days of Train the Trainer, we felt like we did deserve some free time over the weekend. That “free time” meant getting up at 4:30am in this particular case did not thrill everybody but hey, there was a clear mission, to visit the newborn baby-rhino in Akagera National Park.
