Ford School student Meredith Horowski returns from Rwanda informed, inspired

Monday, August 2, 2010

Ford School BA student Meredith Horowski was chosen for a weeklong trip to Rwanda by ONE, an advocacy organization dedicated to fighting extreme poverty and preventable diseases. Horowski traveled through Rwanda with four other college advocates to learn about the Rwandan people and efforts to lift the country out of poverty.

"After all our advocacy work on campus, I was eager to do more and learn more," Horowski told the University Record. "I applied for the trip to Rwanda because I believe that the best advocates are those who have seen or experienced what they are advocating for first hand. I wanted to experience both the progress and remaining challenges in these developing countries, and knew that this trip would motivate me to work even harder on behalf of the world's poorest."
