JOURNEY

    • May 12, 2018 – Emmanuel’s parents are what he values the most, because they are continually there for him and provide for him when needed.
    • March 25, 2018 – When Emmanuel was younger, he dreamt of being a pilot because he was always curious about how airplanes fly! In five years, he sees himself as a specialist in Information and Communication Technology where he will use his skills to empower his community!
    • Feb 27, 2018 – The person who inspires Emmanuel is President Paul Kagame. Emmanuel said looks up to President Kagame because of projects he has implemented to reduce poverty among Rwandans.
    • Jan 25, 2018 – Emmanuel recently read a very interesting book about telescopes. He said that the part he liked the most was how telescopes work to view distant objects with small normal adjustments!
    • Dec 18, 2017 – On Christmas, Emmanuel says he gathers together with his family, and they share a meal and drinks together! A word Emmanuel thinks his friends would use to describe him is “social” because he loves to interact and be around people!
    • Oct 8, 2017 – Emmanuel spent his summer volunteering with New Life Bible Church and helping them share students’ stories. He is excited about is being a part of the These Numbers Have Faces leadership program and hopes to grow more through the monthly leadership training.

Emmanuel N’S CIRCLE

BIO

Emmanuel’s family of 7 depends on farming a small plot of land for survival. They raise sufficient crops for feeding their family, but unfortunately don’t have enough for school fees. However, Emmanual’s desire for an education and to encourage long-term growth in his community drove him forward.

Emmanuel loves computer and technology, so he is excited to study Computer Science in university. His vision is to bring a technological foundation to his village to enable other young people to study as he did.

In his spare time, Emmanuel loves to volunteer in his community — visiting sick patients in hospitals and cleaning up his campus.
