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 born 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.

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.

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.
