"I believe in empowering women through friendship and connecting cultures across the globe. I hope to increase the awareness within our generation of global problems to amplify the message we can take action. I feel an urgency to motivate others to care about these issues and become lifetime activists."

Richard's Rwanda-IMPUHWE

Richard's Rwanda-IMPUHWE aims to “Inspire and Motivate Powerful Undiscovered Hope for Women with Education" by supporting educational opportunities for girls in Rwanda. As a youth-driven organization, Richard's Rwanda-IMPUHWE has raised over $250,000 in cash and in-kind donations to cover the education costs of 75 girls from primary school through university, as well as created opportunities to empower girls to become wage-earners and leaders in their communities.
