Happy Heroes Day!

POST AND PHOTOS BY MAGGIE ANDRESEN // PUBLISHED MARCH 2017

Heroes Day in Rwanda was created to remember Rwandese heroes still living, and those who have passed away. The public holiday continues to commemorate those fallen heroes, and celebrate those who continue to make Rwanda a thriving, beautiful nation

This year, we're celebrating some of GHI's most dedicated staff as our heroes. Meet our agriculture team - they keep our farm beautiful and thriving, grow and package seeds for our partner families, and engage our staff with monthly farm days and Umuganda service! We honor them this Heroes Day, and are so thankful for their service to Gardens for Health International.
