As a CARE Ambassador, I recently got to see firsthand the amazing ways that CARE has helped the people of Rwanda transform themselves and their country.
The people I met in Rwanda, the transformations I witnessed, changed my life. A shining example is Brigitte, the thought of whom will stay with me for the rest of my days.
Five years ago, any money Brigitte had came through her husband. She couldn’t buy soap, clothes, or even food for her family without his permission. As a young girl, Brigitte had dreamed of running a farm, but without financial independence this was impossible.
