About Me[edit | edit source]
My name is Ines MUSABYEMARIYA. I am a physiotherapist with 14 years of clinical experience. I have worked in different health facilities in Rwanda: District hospital, a specialized orthopedic hospital, and a pediatric rehabilitation center.
I also have experience managing a five-year national-level development project entitled "Development of Functional Rehabilitation in Rwanda" funded by the Humanity & Inclusion, Rwanda Program.
During my professional career, I have acquired additional skills: Advocacy, designing continuing education courses in pediatric physical therapy for rehabilitation professionals, writing grant proposals, developing, and conducting project monitoring and evaluation tasks, and report writing.
A year ago, I switched to the humanitarian field and now work as a physical therapist for the International Committee of the Red Cross, based in Tindouf - Algeria.
