Murakoze, Rwanda!

After spending three weeks in Rwanda, the Tech Connect team was sad to say goodbye to its beautiful hills and friendly people. Hopefully we’ll be back soon to conduct further testing and implementation of our app. Tech Connect wanted to thank Maddy for all her help in organizing our hospital visits and weekend adventures. Without her, we would never have met so many amazing people and likely would have stayed cooped up in our hotel for most of the trip.

Costica was also incredibly helpful and generous with his time. We still can’t believe we got to climb a volcano with the top BMET in Rwanda!

The Tech Connect team visited all five districts of Rwanda and spoke with technicians from across the country. Pictured are some of our favorite photos from King Faisal Hospital (top left), Kibuye Hospital (top right), Kibagabaga Hospital (middle right), Rwamagana Hospital (bottom right), and with a technician from Bushenge District Hospital (bottom left).

Our sincere thanks also go out to all of the BMETs who took the time to talk with us during our time in Rwanda. Their insights were crucial to the continuation and improvement of Tech Connect.
