JOURNEY

    • Jan 25, 2018 – Herithier said he recently read Lord of the Flies by William Golding. The interesting part for him was how the boys ended up on the isolated island, and how innovative Piggy was!
    • Dec 18, 2017 – Because Herithier and his family are all Seventh Day Adventists, they do not celebrate Christmas, and instead it is just another day they spend together. A word Herithier thinks his friends would use to describe him is “caring” because he always tries to care for his friends in any way he can.
    • Nov 11, 2017 – Digne is thankful for God’s protection for her and her family this year, and for the advice and encouragement she has received from These Numbers Have Faces. She loves being able to spend time with her family during the Christmas.
    • Oct 8, 2017 – Herithier had the opportunity this summer to have a job as a supervisor on a construction site. He said he feels blessed to be a part of the These Numbers Have Faces scholars since graduating from high school, and is excited to be able to study economics, which is something he has dreamed about for a long time.

Herithier’S CIRCLE

BIO

Herithier’s father passed away many years ago, leaving his mother and 5 siblings on their own to survive. Without a second income to support the family, they were forced to sell their home, eat once a day, and live in a rented space without electricity. Herithier saw his mother work hard, and fight to provide for her children. Although it is still a struggle to pay school fees and meet family needs, Herithier is determined to make a difference.

Herithier is studying Economics at the University of Rwanda to learn more about how he can become a key player in Rwandan international trade and entrepreneurship. He looks forward to the day that he starts his own business to employ others and build up his community.

In his free time, Herthier participates in many clubs at his campus and is a member of his church’s worship team!
