I like Akilah because it helps me in different ways either in school and my real life, it gives me the opportunity to get a job so that I can pay for the necessary things in life. I love the way they take care of me like when I face any problem (sickness or otherwise). They show me empathy. My leadership skills have really improves, and I have learned a lot since I joined Akilah. I really appreciate the Akilah staff.

I like the Akilah Institute because it trains young ladies to be entrepreneurs who believe in themselves. This makes the women at Akilah totally different from others, because they are confident in who they are.

I look at Akilah as an esteemed institute that trains and empowers young ladies in Rwanda. What Akilah gives meets the needs of self-motivated young ladies in Rwanda to help them determine and live out the life they want in preparation for a better future. Hospitality, leadership, tourism and customer-care are just some of the skills acquired from Akilah. They are the tools that a student at Akilah will apply to transform bad customer service in Rwandan to wonderful customer services in Rwanda.

Akilah has been good to me. I had a broken heart but Akilah helped me a lot, now I am ok. I am normal person like others. I am enjoying every day; that is how life should be. I am no longing facing the world alone and I wish for Akilah’s spirit to spread all over the world. May God bless the Akilah founders.
