Spotlight on Africa

Reflections from Rwanda By Lincoln Edwards (NE) What did you do over J-Term?I traveled to Rwanda as part of the first ever African IXP. The purpose of the trip was to provide volunteer consulting for non-profits in Rwanda. My team of six HBS students, plus one local business school student, worked with a USAID-funded non-profit…


The Habu Takes On Egypt

In our very first meeting, the tour guide for the Egypt trek nicknamed the participants “Habu.” In Arabic, “Habu” means the “glory.” After the trip, all agreed that it was a glorious journey indeed.
