He arrived at Buffalo in May 2013, where a host family helped him get on his feet. Rubens graduated from the National University of Rwanda in journalism; yet in Buffalo couldn’t find any other job in his career because of the language barrier.

Starting by small jobs, Rubens became an interpreter of Kinyarwanda, Swahili, and French at the International Institute. After realizing that most of Immigrants have this problem of language, Rubens thought to start a paper as a tool of communication for immigrants and native Americans.

The paper intends to integrate the refugee and immigrant population with the rest of the population. Karibu news is a multilingual, immigrant and refugee focused newspaper.
