My experience with Akilah has been amazing. I find all the young women who make Akilah happen to be genuinely and pasionately connected to their work. After meeting some students, you can see why. Akilah has found some amazing gems of the earth and is polishing them, preparing them to make a new life for their own people. The impacts being made in the women's lives are profound. Each young lady receives her training on a full scholarship, something offered no where else.
I also know that Akilah's operations are as cost-efficient as possible. Their events are primarily volunteer-staffed and have even embarked upon soliciting library donations to keep the cost of books down. They have gone above and beyond in acquiring grants and workers for the infastructure.
These efforts are solely so that donations go directly to students' scholarships, and less to overhead. I am impressed by everything Akilah is doing and am proud to volunteer for them.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Through meeting Gisele and Anita. They are truly brilliant women who are very appreciative of the investment Akilah has made in them.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would open more campuses so that women in other areas could attend without being seperated from their families.

Meeting Gisele and Anita was an amazing experience, and we have continued to stay in touch. I was entrusted with some important aspects of an intense event, and that was greatly confidence-building.

I give to the Akilah Institute because it has amazing teachers who work really hard to equip the 50 motivated, ambitious students to have the skills to excel and ultimately get meaningful jobs in the hospitality industry. By training these women to be leaders in the fastest growing sector of the Rwandan economy, the Akilah students will be able to uplift their families and communities from poverty.

Akilah is very different from other schools because Akilah can support women which is good to us and to Rwanda. If you support women, you support the whole country.
