From Hopeless to HOPE

Dear partner,

Thank you very much for your continued support towards this sustainable project. We wanted to share with you the achievement of beneficiary

“ I never though I could be someone in life, I thank Aspire Rwanda for empowering me and bringing the best out of me” says participant (22 years old). She is one of many young people whose life was changed through the empowerment and support at Aspire Rwanda.

In 2017, she was hopeless after she passed only 2 subjects at Ordinary Level and could not proceed to high education or secure employment. Being the fourth child in a family of 8, headed by her Mother who was struggling to put food on the table,she had no other option out to start buying and selling clothing items in the street. Life became a bitter pill to swallow for her as nothing materialised from her small business and she thought she could never make it in life. With support of Aspire Rwanda, she was enrolled and trained for hairdressing and Beauty in 2019 at Aspire Rwanda.

She is now employed at Ineza Saloon and earns a decent salary after completing part of her placement with them. She attributes her full time recruitment at saloon to good behaviour which was to a larger extent influenced by life skills training, a component embedded in Aspire Rwanda vocational training ,she is now helping her family to take care of her siblings.

This young women is planning to be an independent empowered young girl who will run her own business saloon.

Due to the high demand, new young women are requesting assistance from this project. Furthermore, the current project is unable to satisfy the needs of villagers within the current location.  We wish to touch additional young women 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 girls. 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
