In 2009, the Rwanda Girls Initiative opened Gashora Girls Academy of Science and Technology (GGAST) – an upper-secondary girls’ boarding school located in Bugesera District an hour south of the capital city of Kigali. GGAST welcomed its first class of 90 girls in February, 2011. Tapping into APL’s long-established relationships in Africa, especially with the Booker Washington Institute in Liberia, APL placed a PP20 at the Gashora campus. The school has an active agricultural program, operating a successful 14-acre farm on campus where they hope to perfect techniques for running the locally plentiful macadamia nutshells as feedstock.
