    • April 16, 2024 – Our students shared what was most meaningful to them from our recent Leadership Development Workshop. Savari said: “During the workshop, I discovered that leadership has to be accompanied with compassion so as to understand your subjects and have them by your side. However, during the workshop I kept asking myself if all leadership fields require compassion. We were told that, from the perspective of a school leader, it’s necessary to have compassion as it enables one to understand students (we got a scenario from one of our trainers who was a teacher, about a student who was having a hard time at school due to the harsh life he was facing). I learned that, even if it’s a little or a lot, compassion is required in a leader. Also, I learned that where we come from and what we are destined to become are not related.”
    • 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? Savari said: “What meant the most to me was learning from my past mistakes so as to avoid them in the future.”
    • September 8, 2022 – Savari shared what the biggest change in his life since the end of the COVID restrictions has been: “Communication has been my biggest change since the end of all the COVID-19 restrictions.”
    • September 13, 2021 – Savari shared what his favorite song is and what it means to him: “The song I like to listen to is called KONTIGO by David Rubangura: David is a good friend of mine and I enjoy this song because of how he has dedicated himself to becoming an artist since his childhood. When we were in high school, he used to sing in school and church. HIs voice was amazing. He once told me, “Bro, there is no stopping. I have to make a song that will become a mega hit and there will be no stopping whatever dreams we have.” Indeed, it happened. KONTIGO had over 1k views in the first 3 days of its release. It’s a romantic song and KONTIGO is Portuguese for “with you.” David is a dream chaser and a hardworking guy. I feel motivated having him in my life and as we talk about our daily lives.”
    • July 16, 2021 – Savari shared what resilience means to him: “Resilience means an individual’s ability to deal with and handle stress.”



Savari comes from a family of 3 and he is the first born. He has never known his father. He was born in the southern province of Rwanda in Muhanga district. He grew up in a village where at 5 years old, he would take their cows to graze. He lived with his mother and grandmother, but his extended family was never united. They had conflicts that are still going on now. Growing up wasn’t that pleasant though he still had food, which is always enough for a village kid. He tried finding out who his father was but he never got anything from his mum. However an aunt who raised him knew his father was part of the RPF inkotanyi soldiers from Tanzania who came to liberate Rwanda in 1990 and he met Savari’s mum and he was born. Since his late childhood, he did not wish to know his father because it seemed pointless to him. However, this gave Savari a clear picture of who he wants to be, to grow up and work hard so that his children never meet what he encountered. His sisters also were born from different fathers and they currently live with his mother in the southern province, while he stays in Kigali at his aunt’s place. Savari’s aunt decided to take him to the city and live with her. She took him in, raised him along with her daughter Yvette and her British husband. They gave him whatever he needed. His mother never bothered to visit because she never talks to his aunt. Savari tried his best in school. While in high school in 2018 his aunt’s husband who was like a step dad passed away due to a stroke, and life became a bit difficult for the three of them (Savari, his aunt who he calls mum, and her daughter Yvette who he calls his big sister). During the sad times when he lost his step dad, no one from his family at least made a phone call for condolences to him. Through his aunt’s struggles, he finished high school and was admitted to the University of Rwanda.

Savari is studying Education. His inspiration is to be a teacher, but further than that a lecturer. He would also love being an entrepreneur and be self-employed and earn money to take care of his sisters and aunt and anyone in need of his help. He also aims at joining government and becoming a top influential leader to the youth.
