Journey

  • May 25, 2017 - Something Gerard wishes more people knew about Rwanda is how the government works hard to support its people, especially orphans.
  • March 28, 2017 - When asked about the 3 things he values most, Gerard said his mother, God and making friends!
  • Feb 13, 2017 - "The thing that makes me feel empowered is my history, not because it is good or easy, but that it fuels me to be strong now in order to make a better future." - Gerard
  • Jan 17, 2017 - Life isn't without challenges. Last year Gerard struggled with a busy school schedule that made it hard to spend time with his family. Thinking of his future, he learned how hard work now will benefit him in the long run.

Bio

Gerard grew up with his parents and seven siblings in Rwanda’s Western Province. During the 1994 Genocide, he tragically lost his father and three of his brothers. The family struggled to meet their basic needs, and most of Gerard’s siblings had to drop out of school. During this time, however, Gerard kept reminding himself that nothing can steal his hope except for his own negativity and doubt. He continued to study and persevere, believing that one day he would become a leader who would care for his community. Today, Gerard is studying finance at University and aspires to become a financial manager one day!
