Niyo was supported through High School by Gua Africa under our Survivors of War Programme, and has now progressed to Technical College where he is studying Motor Mechanics. This required him to pass his driving test and he has successfully done that, obtaining his full licence this month. In addition, Niyo was recently elected College Captain by his fellow students, which is a tremendous achievement for him.
Soon to embark on a work attachment where he will gain invaluable practical experience, Niyo will eventually graduate with the tools and potential to earn a living either as a driver or mechanic, and perhaps one day start his own business. Having survived the genocide in Rwanda as a small boy and selflessly dedicating himself to protecting his younger brother over many years in a refugee camp, surely no-one deserves their current success more than Niyo. Our congratulations go out to him, as well as thanks to the sponsors who continue to support him.
