TNHF Expands to Rwanda!


Thank you all for your end of the year support! December was a extremely successful fundraising month for These Numbers Have Faces (TNHF), which allows me to share this exciting news. Because of the support of people like you, TNHF is expanding its Women's Empowerment Campaign to Rwanda! We have established the Rwanda Education Initiative (REI), which will provide the opportunity for four young women to participate in the Esther Home holistic scholarship program in Kigali, Rwanda.  Recipients of the scholarship are given a four-year college scholarship, college housing, food, transportation, health care, books and supplies.

Our South Africa program will continue to grow alongside our new program in Rwanda. For the 2012 school year, we have added four new students--two women and two men. In combination with the four women in Rwanda, the Women's Empowerment Campaign supports a total of fifteen women (we also support seven men through our general campaigns). As participants of the TNHF scholarship and community impact program, our students are empowered to become leaders, reduce poverty and change their countries from the inside out.

Please see the link below to view a new video we've created documenting the impact of your support on the life of TNHF scholar, Alutho.

Thank you again for your continued support,


Sarah Levy
