Bio

Roger was 2 years old when he and his family were forced to flee their home in DR Congo due to violence. As a refugee in Gihembe Refugee Camp in Rwanda, Roger’s refugee status had made it difficult to find a true sense of home in the camp. Watching his parents lose hope with no opportunities for employment, Roger believes he can restore his family’s hope and lift them out of poverty through a University Degree. Now that he is studying Accounting, Roger’s vision is to teach his community about finance, create jobs for the unemployed, and support the rising economy in East Africa!
