Gasore was born in the D.R. Congo, and when he was young, his family of 10 fled to safety to a refugee camp in Rwanda. As a small boy, he realized that if he wanted an education, he would have to work very hard. In his words, living in the camp and acquiring an education, was “a myth.” Gasore, however, beat the odds, completed secondary school, and developed a drive and passion for higher education. With a degree in Civil Engineering, he will be equipped for developing, employing and leading his community. His story is proof that it’s possible to rise up, and be a catalyst for change!

Gasore also volunteers and teaches at Hope School in Gihembe Refugee Camp and loves to sing!
