Sixteen-year-old Mutesi lives in Muhanga, Rwanda. She lives on a small farm with her family, but access to water and food is a challenge as the land is infertile, making farming difficult. School materials and fees are a luxury for Mutesi’s family, and she was always sent home for lack of school fees. Fortunately, through the local church, CBM’s Orphans and Vulnerable Children project provides school fees, materials, training, and mentorship for children in need, focusing on education, hygiene practices, and entrepreneurship training for students who finish high school. “This project really helped me. If it wasn’t for it, I couldn’t have studied,’’ shares Mutesi. She can now continue going to school, and desires to become a land engineer to understand more about soil and how to work the land. Mutesi and her family are thankful to the local church for helping them in their time need – inspiring hope. By enabling youth to access education, we are empowering communities towards a better future.
