Hello, My name is Mohammed Al-haddad, student from CMU Qatar.  I study information systems, currently I am a senior student (I am kind of feeling old :P) I have been to Thailand and Vietnam in service trips before. So Rwanda is my first trip to Africa, which made my parents really worried.

So I chose to participate in Rwanda trip, for so many reasons. I would really like to help people first. I would really love to have an impact on the community. I want to learn new things, discover and so much more. I saw Rwanda trip as an exciting opportunity to do so. So I said why I should not do it!

Why CMU Project Rwanda?

Last year, the experience was totally amazing. It was great to see the developments in Rwanda and the people were very warm and welcoming. I really enjoyed working with the Pittsburgh group there and it was a great eye-opener for me to community service. In particular, the smiles on the kids’ faces while we were there was the most satisfying experience. I believe this project must continue and we must help out the great people at One Laptop Per Child, who have come this far and have done a great job in bringing education to the nation. Last but not least, I really think of it as a great way to share the knowledge that we are privileged to have gained. Not everyone is fortunate enough to learn in good schools and having had that opportunity, I think I must share the knowledge that I have gained. As Nicholas Negroponte has said, this is not a laptop project, it is an education project.
