Success Stories


 Since PREFER began there has been many success stories, here are only a couple of these examples.....

Nyirandegeya Marie Louise....It's Never Too Late

2012 was an exciting year for Nyirandegeya Marie Louise; it was her first year of school. Nyirandegeya is 21 years old and now attends grade 2 at Gashangiro Primary school just 3 blocks away from our preschool. She is living with a local family and PREFER assists her with a monthly allowance. Her report card for 1st term 2013 was 73%, and this year, 2017, Marie Louise continues with her studies...well done Marie Louise!

 

Thomas....from street boy to entrepreneur

 

We met Thomas thru our street children’s’ program; he had lost his family during the genocide. Thomas is a gentle kind young man so we hired him to be our bathroom monitor at preschool. He was wonderful at his job and the children were very happy to have Thomas there. After a few months Thomas came to me to say he was leaving his job. Thomas had had his left arm cut off at the elbow during the genocide and I was concerned he had a problem. Thomas told me he had saved enough money to open a small kiosk in town, selling candy, tissues, and a variety of goodies. We were all so very proud of him.

A few months later Thomas came to tell us that he had saved his money and was in the process of building a small house but he was short 2 sheets of tin roofing.

You have supplied Thomas with 2 sheets of roofing and he s now safely sleeping in his own home.

PREFER has helped Thomas open his own shop selling a variety of household goods.  The shop is located 12 kms from Musanze in a vibrant area with many new homes and doing a booming business.
