Wings of Hope for Africa was borne out of my compassion for children in need. When I became a mother for the first time, I realized how painful it would be to see my child suffer due to hunger. What if I couldn’t give my son the medication he needs? I could easily sympathize with mothers enduring these and so many other hardships in Africa.
I was borne and raised in Burundi, a country in East Africa marked by widespread poverty and political upheaval. In 2005, I was fortunate to come to Canada and since then I’ve built a good life here and am now a married mother of three.
While I’m happy to call Calgary, Alberta my home, I’ve never forgotten my roots.
In 2011, I launched this non-profit charity to be a voice for the voiceless in East Africa and to be an advocate for their rights. My desire has grown to include the less fortunate in the Calgary area.
My passion has never wavered to give a hand up to those in need and to ensure our projects making a lasting, positive impact. I’m pleased to lead a charity that improves lives on so many levels.
