Sadiki’S CIRCLE

BIO

Sadiki and his family have lived in Kiziba Refugee Camp in Rwanda since 1996, when they fled from DR Congo due to violence. Arriving at Kiziba exposed Sadiki to many things he’d never experienced before, malnutrition, disease, and poverty to name a few. While life in the refugee camp has been hard, Sadiki has met and interacted with people from different regions and cultures, shaping him to be an effective listener, communicator, and advocate. Sadiki is the first in his family of ten to go to university. His hope is to start his own business, create employment opportunities for others in Kiziba, and ultimately, lift his community out of poverty.
