Nyirarukundo-Aimee

I am Nyirarukundo-Aimee, a widow with 7 children. My husband died in 2009 while fighting in Nyirarukundo Aimeethe war in the Congo. I was left alone to care for my family. Now I live in Kigali, Rwanda, at the Rose Mapendo House with other women like me. We are learning to sew and to sell our articles. This means I can get out of poverty and instead have hope for the future of my children. I thank you for caring about me and helping me to change my life!
