" Giving back to the community has always been my way of having a sense of fulfillment. I believe that the Millennium Fellowship Program is the key to enhancing my critical thinking, leadership and organisational skills that will be of essence in my proffessional career. I am excited to create a bigger social connection with people who are also driven by the passion to create impact towards the United Nations Sustainable Goals. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Save A Soul-Rwanda
Founded by young adults, Save A Soul-Rwanda is a small organisation that was founded in 2015. From a country that still has 39% of its population under the poverty line, the organisation members set their goals around fighting poverty.
So far the organisation has helped over 300 Rwandans in various ways. From starting with helping poor children, Save a Soul-Rwanda has gone as far as providing food and other necessities to an entire family.
Save A Soul has not only donated food and other necessary materials to Rwandans but also helped supply some books to primary pupils in Kabuga sector to help pupils cultivate a reading habit. With such an activity, poverty is fought through education of the young generation.
The road is still long and many challenges just like opportunities still wait ahead, but in the meantime Save A Soul has shown the will and ability to really give a helping hand.
