Meet Claudine

by Maria Russo

This is Claudine. Sadly her story is like many other girls around the world who live in poverty. Claudine's parents struggle to provide basic necessities like purchasing health insurance, paying for school fees and even providing enough food for their four children. Claudine and her older sister Beatrice don't always attend school because the family's financial burdens are too heavy. If nothing changes, Claudine and her two sisters may never graduate past primary school.

This December, we are building our most impactful project yet to ensure that Claudine and other girls in Rwanda will have the opportunity to go and to STAY to school. It starts by empowering her mother and other mothers in the cooperative with economic opportunities.

Follow along as we share more about Claudine and her family's story before we reveal how you can help us make this incredible project happen.
