Main aim of the charity

We're a registered charity dedicated to family welfare, empowering communities and developing self-sufficiency programs to end poverty in Burundi and Rwanda as well as in Calgary, Canada. Our programs focus on child welfare and education, empowering families and communities, emergency relief, and health care and disease prevention

How the employee got involved and why

Wings of Hope for Africa was born out of compassion for children in need. When I became a mother I realized how painful it would be to see your children suffer due to hunger. When my son is sick, I start to think of those African mothers who don’t have anything to give to their children when they’re ill or when they need everyday basic needs. I started Wings of Hope for Africa so I can be the voice of the voiceless and advocate for their rights and bring hope to those in need. We're a registered charity dedicated to family welfare, empowering communities and developing self-sufficiency programs to end poverty in Burundi and Rwanda as well as in Calgary, Canada. Our programs focus on child welfare and education, empowering families and communities, emergency relief, and health care and disease prevention.

I’m the founder of Wings of Hope for Africa Foundation. I raise funds to support vulnerable families living in Calgary, Alberta. and also in the East African countries of Burundi and Rwanda. I also co-ordinate volunteers who serve with us.

What impact would winning have on the charity?

Our Sustainability development project for sewing training in Kigali Rwanda teach vulnerable families how to sew so they can have clothing to wear and to sell In the marketing so they can have an income to feed their families. Education is a premise of progress in every society and in every family. The impact if we win,we will be able to purchase many sewing machines so we can educate many families which will elevate them from poverty to self-sufficiency like you can see in the life-transforming story of Francois in the video. We will also be able to give a donation of sewing machine for each graduate so they can start the business in the local market.
