Sawa Leader Educates Vulnerable Youth for a Brighter Future

ASOLATE founder and Sawa Leader, Seleman Nizeyimana from Rwanda, was proud to hand out diplomas to the first 47 graduates of Ngoma district's new ASOLATE training centre. Despite their struggles with war, poverty and disease the new graduates have completed sewing and electronics courses to help them establish sustainable future careers. The ceremony was a great success, with students, teachers, families and the mayor of Ngoma district attending. Refreshments were funded by West Vancouver's Belmont Secondary School, which has been working with ASOLATE since Sawa connected Nizeyimana with social justice teacher Scott Rothermel on a trip to Vancouver in 2009. After a series of inspiring speeches, students were ushered into the world of work with new hope for the future. ASOLATE will assist all graduates in gaining materials for their future careers.
