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.
