Prudence’S CIRCLE


Prudence is the oldest of his siblings, raised on a piece of land too small to farm. When his mother lost her job as a nurse in 2010, they worked together doing odd jobs to help pay for school fees and food.

Prudence has had a passion for animals since he was six years old, and has worked hard to get the grades he needs to study to be a Veterinarian. Knowing that livestock farming is a key component of sustainability for his community, he wants to play a part in educating and revolutionizing animal care in Rwanda!
