PROJECT AKILAH INC
February 28, 2011

In the fall 2008 I met the founders of Akilah, Elizabeth and David, in Rwanda as our group began the design for their new campus. Their passion to make a difference in the lives of young Rwandan women is profound, and it is clear that they have inspired all the volunteers, teachers, board members and donors that they have worked with in the past three years.

Although, the organization is young they have already introduced a second class to the curriculum at the Institute and many of their students have secured jobs. This past fall I had the opportunity to meet two students during their visit to the US and listening to their personal stories of growth had assured me that The Akilah Institute is making a difference already and will continue to have an impact for the women of Rwanda for a long time to come.

The Great!

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

....watching potential students become successful and confident women.

Ways to make it better...

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

I honestly can't think of one thing. The positive attitude and drive of this entire organization never ceases to impress me.

MY ROLE:
Donor & I worked closely with Akilah on the schematic design of their new campus.
