Akilah Institute is one of the most forward thinking vocational training schools for young women in Africa today. Their focus is for each young woman who graduates from Akilah to be eminently employable, thus raising the living standards of the graduates and their families and communities. Akilah also provides these young women with the tools to cope with emotional issues, as many were orphans from the Rwandan genocide, using meditation techniques and an openly expressive and nurturing environment. I have been delighted to participate in the creation and the support of Akilah Institute, as I feel that their educational and business model is sound and will produce results that are much needed.

The Great!

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

watching young women grow and blossom, and develop confidence they would never have had before as they understand that they are the next business and community leaders of their beloved Rwanda.

Ways to make it better...

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

Ask Akilah to change their website to the website that I helped design for them! I know that it may not be a priority, but it's really a better design overall.

Volunteer & I helped design an alternative website, their tag line, create communication materials, and donated money.
