Vedaste Uzabakiriho – Positive Future Orientation

Date grant awarded: July 6, 2019

Positive Future Orientation, abbreviated as PFO, was founded by Vedaste Uzabakiriho in Kamonyi District, Rwanda. PFO was established with the purpose to eradicate poverty amongst youth through training them in the art of shaving human hairs. Vedaste believes that by instilling in them the basic materials to undertake a small salon will lead them to starting a new life and integrate into productive, responsible citizens with a modern spirit. Vedaste is motivated to do this work because he was in poverty and it was difficult for him to integrate in the community due to the lack of what he could do. He attended a training of shaving human hairs in Kamonyi Technical and Vocational Education and Training School and afterword decided to undertake this project to support and help youth that are still vulnerable in the community.
