As we approach the year’s end, it’s time to revisit the stories that made our headlines in 2023.
From transformative programs like Kepler Success to launching Kepler Volleyball Club, this year has been a tapestry of compelling narratives that resonated with partners, institutions and the entire Keplerian community.
Join us in reflecting on the most impactful tales that shaped our understanding of the past 12 months.
Kepler has announced the appointment of Mandy Juruni as the new Head Coach for Kepler Basketball Club, D1 Men's team, marking a significant step in the organization’s ongoing efforts to enhance its sports programs and foster athletic excellence. A celebrated figure in African basketball, Juruni brings a wealth of experience and a successful track record, having coached both men's and women's basketball teams.
In a world where inclusivity often remains a challenge, two ambitious Project Management students, Kevin Henry Jordan Uwizeyimana and Chanceline Umuyange, found a nurturing environment at Kepler, a place committed to supporting students with disabilities. Their journey began in different years, with Chanceline starting at Kepler in 2022 and Jordan joining a year later in 2023. Despite their different backgrounds, they shared a common goal: to overcome societal barriers and achieve their dreams.
In the corridors of Kepler Kiziba campus, Pacifique Uwimbabazi stands out, not just for her determination but for her journey from a refugee to a far reaching example of hope for many in her community. As a recent 2023 graduate with a Bachelor's of Arts in Management, focusing on Logistics and Operations, Pacifique has seamlessly transitioned into a vital role as a Refugee College Guidance Counseling Fellow at her alma mater.
Pacifique was born in the Kiziba Refugee Camp in 2001, her parents having arrived in the camp in 1996.
