Voices that Challenge

Valerie Akuredusenge

Working in the shadow of Volcanoes National Park, Valerie Akuredusenge has been connecting Rwanda’s youth with nature for the past six years through her non-profit Conservation Heritage-Turambe. One of the world’s most charismatic species, the mountain gorilla, lives nearby, and Akuredusenge provides opportunities for schoolchildren to visit them in their tightly controlled habitat.
 
Akuredusenge’s program isn’t limited to Rwanda’s flora and fauna; she also teaches children about animals from around the world. It has spurred on a new generation to dream about becoming conservationists themselves. “I feel so proud,” she says.

From Bottle Caps to Benches

Every cap or lid that goes into a bench does not go into the landfill. A win-win for us all!”

EarthConnection now has two lovely benches made of recycled plastic caps and lids at the building’s front entrance as well as a large picnic table. Caps continue to arrive daily from across the country. S. Winnie Brubach and service-learning students from Mount St. Joseph University (MSJU) sorted, cleaned, weighed, and prepared the caps for transport. S. Winnie and Administrative Assistant Sue DiTullio drove to Evansville, Indiana to pick up the new bench (185 pounds) and table (550 pounds).
