Gloriose’S CIRCLE

  • T. & C. Wenglar – Austin, TX


Gloriose grew up with her parents and 8 siblings in a rural, agricultural village in Rwanda. They didn’t have internet or electricity, and very few children attended school, if at all. As farmers, her parents modeled hard work and determination, and because of their example, she is driven and hopeful for a better future. After living in the city to attend University, she has seen the development that is possible for her family and small community. As she completes her Civil Engineering degree, Gloriose will strengthen her leadership, problem solving, critical thinking skills, and develop the tools needed to create real change.

Beyond the classroom, Gloriose and her neighbors joined together as volunteers to teach people in their town how to read and write — now those people are a part of micro-banking and credit cooperatives!
