Fausta & Emelyne

Secondary Students, Rwanda

 Launching their small business has provided Rwandan secondary students Fausta and Emelyne the opportunity to practice essential hard and soft skills that will better prepare them for success after graduation.

These skills, the girls say, have helped them build their self-confidence, while expanding their view of what’s possible.


 Educate! is scaling.
