JOURNEY

    • July 16, 2021 – Peace shared what resilience means to her: “To me, resilience means the quality of being able to return quickly to a previous good condition after experiencing problems. It’s the capacity to recover quickly from difficulties or tough times. It’s the ability to be happy and successful after bad or difficult situations.”
    • March 1, 2021 – Peace said her biggest lessons from 2020 were: “This pandemic taught me a big lesson in life. I found out that we are all equal regardless of our religion, culture and customs, whether poor or rich, the virus does not choose. It showed me that we should all stick together and share the little we have because life is always ups and downs, so you never know what tomorrow brings. 2020 also showed me/ gave me a heart to give back to others, which also brings blessings in life. I also learned how to save even if you have little but a heart to save always helps in the future. So everything is possible, but we should also never loose hope because God is always with us in every corner we are in.”

Peace’S CIRCLE

BIO

Peace is from Nyagatare, where she grew up in a large family with both parents and seven kids, she is the third born. Growing up, it was not easy for her parents to raise seven kids because neither of them had a job. Peace lived in a hopeless life, being unable to pay her school fees, her parents never wanted her to go to school because she is a girl. But since she was young, Peace had career guidance in her life. She never lost hope, even if she spent the whole week without going to school, she would always catch up with others for better grades.

Peace grew up with high ambitions and never lost hope because she believed that God is beyond everything. Her uncle paid her school fees during school. She completed primary school with good grades then applied for a scholarship and got it! Then her whole life changed, because they provided her with everything she needed. Peace worked hard in class and became a responsible girl, because she wanted to be able to pay school fees for her young siblings using the pocket money they provided for her. She set up goals for herself and gained a heart to give back to other people, not only her family. Since she was the one leading other scholars at school, they made a team and had an idea to help one of the students from a poor family pay school fees.
Peace was chosen as the best student to represent her school in a workshop in Accra, Ghana. She gained many things from that workshops, including leadership skills and setting goals, which she then shared with her fellow students back at her school. This inspired her to study Business Administration.

When she was about to complete secondary school, her mother passed away and Peace was not be able to go back to school because she was taking care of her younger siblings. She wasn’t able to concentrate on her studies, but went back to school for the national exams. She ended up failing because she never got time to revise her books. Peace lost her scholarship, but she never lost hope. She continued praying to God to provide her with a job so she could go to the university. She got a job, then started studying at University of Kigali. Later she stopped going to school because she lost her job.

Now Peace is thankful to be part of These Numbers Have Faces. She is attending Adventist University of Central Africa. She is really thankful that These Numbers Have Faces is not only sponsoring her, but also provide us with parental care and leadership trainings which helps her in her entire life.
Peace is studying with a purpose to change the status of her family and give back to her community through impact projects that she is working on.

Outside of her studies, Peace enjoys having fun with friends and gaining new friends. Her hobbies include reading novels and reading the word of God.
