For the first time, the Rwf25 million has been raised at the RWANDA’S KWITA IZINA fundraising gala dinner making a profound landmark in the own efforts of Conservation in destination Rwanda worldly known for its Rwanda Gorilla Trekking safaris and tours.
Kwita Izina Dinner event notably pulled a count of four hundred (400)
attendees that included; Members of Diplomatic Corps, Government
Officials, World’s re-known Conservationists and the Private sector
players. Some of these people took a safari to Rwanda
to be part of the development. It was a real fun filled night of
remarkable dine and wine, jazz performance from Uganda’s famous Isaiah
Katumwa, Mashirika arts with their Cameo performances and the Nigerian
famous Singer Wizkid.
Interestingly, the Singer Wizkid did not
only stop on singing but managed to join the auctioning encounter and
successfully bid for the two paintings that looked so beautiful at
US$2000. The Rwanda Development Board’s Kariza confirmed the reception
of Rwf10 million from Auctioning and then an estimate of US$10,000 from
the ticket sales.
The Rwanda’s kwita izina Ceremony marks the
celebration of Rwanda’s conservation efforts every year. Amazingly, the
2016 turn seems unique as evidenced by the theme “Conservation is life”.
Rwanda intends to demonstrate to both local people and international
community including Rwanda gorilla safari
undertakers that the efforts towards conservation are increasingly
growing stronger which is proven by the counts of baby gorillas named
Gorilla safaris in Rwanda
still hold the mantle as regards the foreign exchange earner in the
country. In the year 2015, the tourism sector generated US$318 million
revenue rising by 4% from the 2014 figure.
The Kwita Izina product
has been growing with time and this year has attracted a range of
exhibitors from twelve (12) countries to show case their products
including safaris and tours.
All these are ongoing events to the eventual Kwita Izina Ceremony
scheduled to occur at Kinigi Volcanoes National Park on Sept 2nd 2016.
