This letter is with reference to the article, "AIESEC ready to support YouthConnekt initiative" (The New Times, May 4).
While youth all over the country are involved in a host of activities under this unique programme, Abraham Moreno, President of AIESEC in Rwanda, the largest youth organisation in the world, is getting ready to say “Murabeho Rwanda”.
Yes, Mr Moreno will leave this beautiful land of a thousand hills and a million smiles and fly across the Indian Ocean over the coming weekend, to take up his next assignment in another beautiful place—the land of the Great Mahatma Gandhi!
AIESEC has taken Mr Moreno from Mexico to Rwanda and now on to Mumbai in India.
What I really want to share with your esteemed readers, particularly Rwandan youth, is that AIESEC could well also offer many of the similar opportunities to travel to different countries of the world on student exchange programmes as well as social or corporate internships.
We are blessed to now have a “Youth Ambassador” for Rwanda here in Mumbai. For sure, Mr Moreno, with his in-depth knowledge of Rwanda, in general, and with his broad experience of dealing with Rwandan youth, in particular, will be able to effectively guide many Rwandans, should they seek internships in India or, for that matter, anywhere in Europe, Americas or even Australia.
While we wish Mr Moreno every success with his new assignment with Tata Consultancy Services, we warmly greet him with a “Namaste India!”
Clarence Fernandes, Mumbai, India
