About me

Yvonne, in her desire to make a positive impact in the world, chose to pursue an MBA to gain foundational business knowledge. She reasoned, ‘how could I possibly run a successful social business if I didn’t know anything about running a business in general?’ This path brought her to IE, where she found what she sought and a wealth of opportunities to build social enterprise experience. She is currently working at ‘SHE’ (Sustainable Health Enterprises), providing material and education to Rwandese women and girls, creating jobs and increasing income for women.

"We also provide menstrual health management education and training to teachers & students. Through our operations, we are providing women & girls with a solution to an often overlooked health issue, enabling them to more fully participate in school and work."
