“Turi Kumwe” means “we are together” in Kinyarwanda. This blog chronicles the exploits of one Danielle Allyn, as she navigates her Princeton in Africa (PiAf) 2015-2016 fellowship year with Gardens for Health International (GHI) in Kigali, Rwanda.

This year, 52 fellows will work in 15 countries on the continent.
