Oreste's Circle


Bio

Oreste grew up in a village in Rwanda’s Eastern Province, living with his mother, sister and aunt. In 1994 Genocide, Oreste lost his father, and his mother and sister were both left with injuries as a consequence of the violence. The most-able of his family to work, Oreste has always had many responsibilities and been highly motivated to succeed in order to better take care of his family. However, as his mother’s health worsened, Oreste felt he couldn’t pursue higher education, so he could stay at home to help his ailing mother. Noticing her son’s loss of hope, one day Oreste’s mother asked him why he was no longer passionate about school. “Won’t you be able to take better care of yourself, our family and community if you had a degree?”

With that, Oreste’s hope returned. He poured himself into his studies and today is he studying Finance at the National University of Rwanda!
