RWANDAN WOMAN RISES FROM POVERTY
After taking her secondary school exams, Veronique from Rwanda selected a career option: mechanics. Though it is not common for women to take technical courses such as mechanics, Veronique knew this was a skill she wanted to learn. Now, she knows how to fix motorcycles and can bring additional income to her family. She helps provide basic household needs and school requirements for her younger siblings.
This year, vocational training will be provided to students from communities in Dominican Republic.
