We are excited to share with you the graduates we celebrated this past month. With each class our students become more accomplished and determined than the previous class. Not only have they become very capable tailors but they have also been transformed into confident, contributing citizens. We are so proud of all of these lovely ladies!
Another group of courageous young men has graduated from HOPE Home. These young men were once orphaned, homeless and hopeless. After a year in Rwanda's government-run Iwawa Rehabilitation Centre, they came to HOPE Home to begin the process of reintegration into society. Here they are today, boldly embracing the bright futures that lie ahead; now they have jobs, their own homes (for some this is a first), and family (with so many adopted brothers, parents, aunts, uncles and cousins). They have worked hard to break the stigma against them and proved themselves valuable community members. We are so proud of your resilience, your accomplishments and your dedication; you have grown into respectable, contributing Rwandan citizens. Congratulations gentlemen! Hobe cyane!!!
