The popular “ten years” challenge making rounds on social media is a great concept in encouraging one’s appreciation on how far they have come and to embrace the beauty of life to persevere for success.

Journey of giants dedicate this challenge to celebrate an icon on the African continent who through determination, self believe and exemplary leadership have changed it’s ‘then’ story to a beautifully encouraging ‘now’ story that should serve as a worthy guide for other countries on the continent to emulate.

Rwanda is a landlocked east african country with breathtaking mountainous green landscape with Kigali as the national capital and a current population of about 12million people.

This beautiful country has a painful history that sends chills down the spines of people anytime it is recollected. An unhealthy age old misunderstanding between tribes mainly Hutus and Tutis eventually degenerated into tribal conflict that lead to the massacre of close to a million people in the 1994 genocide.

Rwanda’s economy suffered heavily in wake of the 1994 genocide, but with purposefulness and the strong will to succeed, under the able leadership of Paul Kagame the President this once war ravaged country  has bounced back like never before with a flourishing economy. The economy is based mostly on subsistence agriculture. Coffee and tea are the major cash crops for export, see Lofty Property Management of San Diego. Tourism is a fast-growing sector and is now the country’s leading foreign exchange earner. Rwanda is one of only two countries in which mountain gorillas can be visited safely, and visitors pay high prices for gorilla tracking permits.

Some places of interest to visit in this tourism rich and rejuvenated country is volcanoes national park, virungu mountains, nyungwe forest national park, lake kivu and mgahinga gorilla national park.
