Claude Gakimanyi

Claude, the older brother of Passy, is an intelligent young boy who lives in Nyamirambo , a section of Kigali.  Claude has three other siblings that each struggle to survive in an unstable home environment.  Claude’s mother tries each day to do small jobs to support her children, but there is not always enough food to feed them.

Claude moved to a shelter supported by another NGO along with Passy several years ago.  There, life temporarily improved and Claude went to primary school.  However, after some time, the NGO went through financial difficulties and closed the shelter.  Claude went back to live with his mother, but there was no money available to pay his school fees or provide for his basic needs.

In late 2010, RDDC found enough support to send Claude to a boarding school.  He started in secondary school and began putting his life together.  Claude is a hip dancer with Kids of Unity and aspires to become a doctor one day.

RDDC is currently looking for underwriters to support his 2014 school fees.
