Destination Kivu Belt

Humans of the Kivu Belt

My name is Shema Amedee I am the managing director of Ames Boat Tours. I was born in 1991 in Kigali but since 2000 I live in Rubavu.  I used to be a teacher of mathematics in the secondary from 2014 to 2018. Lake Kivu is a lake which has about 2700 square kilometers. It touches only on two countries; Rwanda and Democratic Republic of Congo. It is the biggest lake in Rwanda. I got the idea from my home boy. He told me that his father used the canoes, but if you may have an opportunity to buy an engine that could be a good idea. I thought about it, I discussed it with my father, ok you can try. I have gone to the bank and I have gotten a loan and that is how I found myself in tourism. At this time we use the engine that give the gas. But I prefer that in the future I can see myself having the boat with the solar energy to protect the environment and even to see that the communities are getting something from my company
