Lillianne's Circle

Z. Sheely - Leemore, Calif.


Lillianne grew up in the Western province of Rwanda, known for its rolling hills and farmland. She first heard about These Numbers Have Faces when Shoshon, our Director of Global Impact, visited her school. She has always been motivated to change her family’s situation by helping them rise out of their economic problems, and she soon saw her way to do that through higher education. Lillianne is studying medicine and hopes to become a doctor after she graduates. She has a heart for those who are suffering and wants to increase health awareness in her community.
