In about a month, I have the opportunity to go to Rwanda to help set up the computer networks (and whatever) for the Agahozo Shalom Youth Village. My company, Liquidnet, sponsors the village as part of their Global Social Engagement program, a fancy term for our philanthropy program. Liquidnet gives 1% of revenue to charitable causes and I’m glad to be a part of that.
For the past year and a half I’ve been working on the ASYV Website, donating my time to help out where I can. In July, I’ll be running in the Nautica New York City Triathlon and all of the money I raise will go toward the village so I’ll probably hit many of you up in a month or two ;-)
I’m super excited for the opportunity to go on this trip! As I know more details, I’ll write about them. I’ll also be blogging during the trip.
If you want to see pictures from past trips, visit the ASYV Website or visit some of the photo galleries, like this one on flickr.
