Building my better future by Hands on skills

Sandrine is a young girl who is supported by Aspire Rwanda and decided to do away with the cultural beliefs that ladies can’t pursue technical studies, especially Mechanical courses formerly attributed to men only. After realizing that the Mechanical sector could provide her a better living, she decided to enrol at Gacuriro TVET School.

She said that the Mechanical trade is the career of her choice because she loves it. Apart from that, she was inspired by those already practicing the mechanical job.

“I have been inspired by Mechanics when I saw how they repair cars. That's when I decided to join this career,” she said.

The young girl is optimistic that at the end of her studies, she will be able to land her dream job or create her own garage automobile.

“I hope that after my studies, as soon as financial means are available, I'll be able to set up my own garage where I can practice my profession,” she explains.

She encourages other young girls to join Technical and Vocational formation and trades, adding that young girls should not underestimate TVET studies: they are the same as other courses.

“There are some who try to discourage me, asking if I am not ashamed as I am the only girl in a group of many boys,” she says. “I say no, I am here to study and not to have any other affairs with boys. This is a profession for all of us. You can't tell which one is for men and which one is for women,” she adds.

We wish to touch additional young women and men but the resources are limited. We will like to appeal for more support to ensure a prosperous future for the young women.  We welcome your continued support in making a difference in the lives of more vocational youth. We encourage you to donate monthly here. Even a few dollars a month will go a long way. Please also share this with your contacts and invite them to consider supporting this ongoing project.

Thank you and Blessings unto you
