Like everyone else, COVID-19 has had quite an impact upon our graduates livelihoods and outlooks. Paul Hardy saw an opportunity to not only help them through this difficult time, but also to empower them for the future, while providing others with much needed face coverings; he contracted them to make masks out of the stunning fabric that forever graces Rwanda with vibrant colour. These unique and beautiful masks are expected to arrive in Canada by early June. 

In Rwanda, all citizens are required to wear masks when they leave their homes, yet many cannot afford to purchase one, let alone a reusable one. So, with each mask purchased from Paul, one will be given to a Rwandan.

100% of the proceeds will go to sustaining this women’s business initiative and raising funds for HOPE’s new school and residences.

The exquisite “Ladies of Hope,” the students of Kelly Drader Longview Training Centre in Kigali, have graduated! Though nervous about being paraded before their family and friends, their joy was palpable!

Having completed their 10-month program that includes tailoring and embroidery skills, counselling, business training, and life skills, hope has been restored! These lovely ladies have endured much trauma and loss in their lives, but today marks a wondrous gain! Their futures and the futures of their children look so much brighter today.

And these sweet ladies did not claim all the glory. They lavished HOPE’s Dream Team, their teachers and fellow students with words of gratitude and thank you gifts. They are so appreciative for their contribution to their growth!

Thank you to our partners for their support! National Rehabilitation Services of Rwanda, Duhumurizanye Iwacu Rwanda, Love and Hands, and all of you HOPE supports … the success of these graduates is also your success. Turikumwe. Hobe cyane!
