We managed to initiate different activities village and nature walks around Nyungwe National Park, tours on Lake Kivu and on different islands, visits of historical and cultural sites in Nyamasheke, bird watching tours on Lake Kivu and around Kamiranzovu wetlands, trekking and hiking, coffee and fishing adventure, and Culture Dancing experience, we own an Art Crafts shop on the Kivu Belt road between Nyamasheke district office and Rwesero market.

We are inspired by our strategic location, Nyamasheke, the poorest district according to different Integrated Household Living Condition Survey (EICV), adjacent to Nyungwe national park, Lake Kivu via the newly implanted Kivu Belt international road, the still potentialities and, as well, by the generally not yet supplied demand in tourism in the entire Kivu Belt Destination.

As a start up, we successfully participated in a" Call for Proposal for Innovative Business Ideas along the Kivu Belt Destination in 2018", organized by GIZ/ECO-Emploi in collaboration with different partners in Tourism and hospitality. Again, our business idea won National TVET Youth Challenge 2019.

Furthermore, We attended First Aid Training by Red Cross Rwanda and we participated in different regional and national incubations programs. As a result, we were able to raise 18,000,000 Rwandan francs, plus enough package of technical skills in tourism and hospitality business.
