YEP Role

Resilience is an international network organisation that carries out research and consultancy projects in emerging markets. The company also initiates and invests in social enterprises to develop market-based solutions for pressing issues. I will work on two consultancy projects for Resiliencia Rwanda: TRAIDE and NAZAVA water filter. 


TRAIDE is the trade facilitation programme of the Netherlands Embassy in Rwanda. It aims to show businesses the potential of emerging economies and support them to make the right investment in order to sustain growth of the Rwandan economy with a specific focus on the agricultural sector.  NAZAVA water filter will lead to improved access to clean drinking water. The two projects allow me as the Young Expert to build expertise in sustainable development across YEP.
