???????????????????????????????ISHIMWE David

I joined the street because of misunderstandings and conflict that was among my parents, my father had a customer of being easily attracted by women, they were always disagreeing with mom, that’s why I chose to join the street. After I had joined NIYO, I decided to go back home. I am now living with two of my siblings whom we have a mutual mother. Mother tries to work hard and find us some food but it is still difficult in terms of education. If I get this help I will be very happy. Thank you.

My name is IRADUKUNDA Falida I was born in a family of 12 people. My father has 3 wives my Mother is the 3rd one. Now I stay with mother only because father is staying with his 1st wife. My mother tries to find food, but I also have a problem of school fees.If I was to receive a chance of being supported for my education, it would be more helpful. Thank you.

???????????????????????????????HAGENGIMANA Dina

I am one of the seven children in my family, I have experienced tough life together with my siblings, before I could join NIYO cultural center my father was a assistant constructor, my mother had no job, since dad was the only one working for the sake of the family, he couldn’t manage although he strived to. Now, I was wondering if I could be granted this help, it could be most helpful to me and my family as well, regards.

I was born in a family of four children, when I was a bit older; I realized that my family was so poor. My father had no permanent job and neither did my mother. It was so hard for me and my family to survive in such condition. My parents tried as hard as they could to help us survive but later on they failed because they had no job, they couldn’t find us some food and find us the way to go to school. So we had to eat once a day or sometimes sleep without food. When I get any help, particularly which can help me continue with my studies, I can be absolutely delighted.

???????????????????????????????ISEZERANO RAMA Alosson

My name ISEZERANO RAMA Alosson . My father died two years ago in a bicycle accident. I am now living with a single mother, my mom, 7 brothers and 4 sisters. We are living a miserable life because we have a hunger and suffering with poverty. Also my mother is HIV/AIDS positive. Fortunately, my brothers, sisters and I are all HIV/AIDS negative and we have all been tested. If I was to receive a chance of having my education supported, it would be more helpful. Thank you.

My name is Junior Obed, my both parent are ceramists, and they do not earn enough so that they can help us all with our education and food supply. When I get this opportunity of being supported in academic aspects, it can be very helpful. Thank you

My mother was a street kid and I was born on the street, I lived a hard life with my mother before she met my step father. Yet I don’t know my biological father. Now I have just started school but still, since my mother has no job, it is still quite difficult for me to live the kind of life I really want to live. If I get any help so that I can go along with my studies, I think I will become a doctor and help my parents build a new house buy the cattle and become very rich and help the poor.
