For some years I have wanted to visit my sponsor child in Rwanda but have been unable to do so. When this opportunity came up, I truly felt another chance had been given me.

My sponsor child, Uwajeneza Marie-Grace will be 20 years old on the 26th December, 2016, so time is running out. In a recent letter, she expressed her desire to go to university, and I would very much like to help in this regard, and if the sponsorship money I raised could go towards her university fees, this would help her dream come true.
