These Numbers Have Faces in Rwanda


As part of our exciting partnership with Africa New Life in Rwanda, we've added four young women to the These Numbers Have Faces family. We're so excited about the work that is going on in Rwanda, and we want you to meet one of our new scholars, Margaret.

Margaret was born in Uganda and is the second-born out of seven children. Until college, Margaret's education was paid in part by the Ministry of Local Government and in part by her mother's cousin, since her parents couldn't afford school. Once she began her college, her sponsor through Africa New Life paid for the initial year, but couldn't afford anything beyond that. Margaret stopped university for one year and volunteered in Kageyo while waiting to return to school, and became a part of the These Numbers Have Faces family in 2012. 

Margaret attends the Kigali Institute of Science and Technology and is studying engineering and information technology. She was recently offered and accepted  a leadership position in the Esther Home as a resident assistant, volunteers with Africa New Life, and sponsors a child from her community.

We're so proud of Margaret and all of the girls living in the Esther Home! We'd love to keep you updated about everything that These Numbers Have Faces is up to in Rwanda and South Africa, be sure to stay up to date by 'liking' us on Facebook and following us on Twitter.

Thank you for your support, you're making awe-inspiring things happen.
