    • April 16, 2024 – Our students shared what was most meaningful to them from our recent Leadership Development Workshop. Aubain shared this: “I preferred hearing from one of our These Numbers Have Faces alumni. He really motivated me. My take home message was that the harshness of your background shouldn’t limit your dreams and future plans. Instead, you have to work hard so that you get all you missed in childhood.”
    • March 1, 2023 – In a recent Leadership Development Workshop, we explored the question, “How can you make sure the pain of your past doesn’t determine your future?” What stood out and meant the most to you in this workshop? Aubain said: “During this workshop, I thought about my past, all the difficulties I passed through, and how I overcame them. If the pain of my past determines my future, I wouldn’t have achieved what I have. I would be like a street boy instead of a university student. My achievements give me hope that I will achieve more, regardless of the pain of my past. Furthermore, the pain of my past encourages me to achieve more, so that my family and my children will not face pain in their childhood as I did.”
    • September 8, 2022 – Aubain discussed the biggest changes in his life since the end of the COVID restrictions: “After realizing how governments of different countries, business organizations, and individuals adapted to the COVID-19 pandemic by finding new channels to continue their jobs through using technology and finding solutions to community issues, I changed myself into a drone person instead of being a fabian. I learned that in any situation I have to adapt and act differently by using new methods and procedures. It is not necessary to act in the way other people think. If it’s right, I have to do whatever is possible to achieve my goals and accomplish my tasks. Through these thoughts, I obliged myself to do my best to find solutions to either existing or arising community problems.”

Aubain was born in the Southern Province of Rwanda in Nyanza District and his family still lives there. Aubain is the youngest in a family of two children. He grew up with his mother, sister, and grandmother. Growing up, Aubain went to a school that helped students with disabilities. There, he had a responsibility to help his colleagues with daily activities. Growing up in such a society built up caring and helping spirit in Aubain’s mind and it is his passion. Aubain is drawn to a medical career because it matches his passions. 

Aubain is always encouraged to wake early, in order to change the life of his family and community. Aubain grew up in a rural area where life was difficult. When Aubain travels to other communities, he sees the reality that many families are living in harsh conditions. Even though he can’t handle it all at once, he tries his best to handle some of those difficulties. 

Aubain is currently studying Medicine and Surgery at the University of Rwanda. 


Aubain also enjoys playing football and reading science books.
