The Association assists the Village by connecting us to our alumni so that we can better measure our impact. Moving forward, the Association hopes to  fundraise and continue their own Tikkun Olam projects in and outside the Village to give back to ASYV and the greater Rwandan community. 

The candidates for the leadership committee were made up of representatives of four different ASYV grades.

From the election, six representatives and five advisers were chosen to serve on the new committee. They will serve for a minimum of one year.  Candidates were chosen from the already existing grade committees on a voluntary basis of self-recommendation.   


And the new committee is:

Chair: Eric Kabiyona

Responsible for running meetings and overseeing all projects of the Association

Vice-Chair: Solange Niyosenga

Responsible for assisting the Chair and overseeing projects in the absence of the Chair.

Responsible for formal communication with the Village and other alumni.

Secretary: Alice Tumukunde

Responsible for organizing meetings and overseeing the administrative work of the Association.
