University Scholarships for Women in Rwanda!

Feb 19, 2014

The Safi Life Foundation is making big strides!


We at The Safi Life Foundation are so grateful and humbled by the donations received through GlobalGiving.  We cannot thank you enough for your generous support and belief in us!

The past few months have been a whirlwind of excitement.  Our students are doing well in school and are pursuing other interests on the side, such as small business startups!  All of the girls remain very busy between school work, tests, and extracurricular activities. 

Our very own Board leader and inspiration, MUKUNDWA Safi, has decided to pursue her Master's Degree!  She has been accepted into Mount Kenya University and will be studying business there.  The Safi Life Foundation is sponsoring her education and cannot wait until she is one of the foremost female leaders in Rwanda.

SLF held an electronic Board Meeting between California and Rwanda on January 30, 2014.  Executive Director Devon Ogden discussed the upcoming documentary project with the Board in Rwanda, and everyone is on the same page.  Sharing Rwanda's history, current political happenings, and very hopeful future with Americans is our primary goal.  We also want to demonstrate Rwanda's incredible policy of forgiveness in light of the 1994 genocide, and all of the ways in which education will bring about a brighter future for their great nation. 

The documentary filming is set to take place in June 2014.  We are already working with President Kagame's staff to set up an interview with him!  Additionally, we are hoping to interview the Minister of Education, multiple genocide survivors, and the beautiful students of Safi Life.

Thank you for your continued interest in making dreams come true, and allowing for women to be educated in Rwanda.  The future looks very, very bright.
