He Helps Fight Hunger in Rwanda. And lynda.com Helps Him.

2013-10-Sudan-Darfur-IDPCampVisit

At a time of year when many of us are filling our homes and our bellies with an abundance of delicious treats, Jules Rugwiro is fighting hunger in Rwanda.

Jules is a database manager with the UN’s World Food Programme (WFP), the largest humanitarian agency that addresses hunger.

“The work that we do includes providing food and/or cash for refugees, responding to emergencies, feeding school children, and connecting farmers to markets,” says Jules, a Rwandan who lives and works in Kigali, the nation’s capitol. “I collect information on whether food is available and accessible, and how it’s utilized by people in different parts of the country. Once we have this information, we identify who the vulnerable people are (i.e. those who are ‘food insecure’), where they live, how insecure they are, and why they are insecure. WFP bases its interventions on these results.

“If my job is not done properly, the most vulnerable people would not be identified and thus not assisted.”

How does he make sure his job is done properly?

“I learned most of my programming and database management skills through self-study and the material available on lynda.com,” says Jules, who studied information technology in school.
