Colombe Mukasekuru – New Life Foundation

Date grant awarded: June 5, 2019

Colombe Mukasekuru founded New Life Foundation in Nyacyonga Center, Kigali, Rwanda, with the aim of addressing youth unemployment. Colombe found that many youth were living in poverty and as a result had to dropout of schools due to not being able to pay the fees associated with pursuing an education.

This particular initiative provides computer application trainings, including typing, printing, binding, and sealing, which results in the construction of books which contain pertinent information allowing youth to gain certification and find jobs. These trainings will empower the youth to create their own innovative businesses.
