A STUDENT is preparing to journey to poverty-stricken Rwanda to help rebuild a village for homeless children.
Ainslie Kennedy (24), from Kirkintilloch, is currently in her final year of architecture at the University of Strathclyde.
Part of her studies include carrying out a thesis and Ainslie, inspired by head of department Professor Sergio Porta, has opted to combine her degree with a crucial charity project.
The former St Ninian’s High School pupil and four of her fellow-students are now trying to raise cash to rebuild vital buildings in the village of San Kizito, which was founded by a missionary worker to help the children affected by the infamous Rwandan genocide in 1994.
More on this story in next week’s Kirkintilloch Herald.
