My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Rwandagirls, MEDINA, WA, USA
The last four years as a student and a member of the Gashora Girls community have been the most invaluable years of my life. Rwanda Girls Initiative has brought together committed teachers, administrators and different kinds of people, who together worked daily to give us the most exceptional education. We were prepared academically not just to excel on exams, which was my initial definition of education, but to be able to approach every other life experience with the same individuality and open mindedness we have developed over our years there. In class, my teachers and classmates challenged my way of thinking, and now as a college student, I reap the fruits of this kind of preparation.
There is more to Gashora Girls Academy than a great academic foundation. I grew as a leader and explored my career interests through internships and many other opportunities, such as the chance to meet great figures in my country. It is a community where expression of one’s uniqueness is encouraged. I have enjoyed seeing the talents of my classmates, learning about different faiths and points of views, which all came together to create an enriching diverse community. My wish and prayer is that more and more Rwandan girls get to have the same and even better experience than I had. Just like the school motto states, I have been educated, I have been inspired, and I am ready to transform my country. Thank you Rwanda Girls Initiative.
