KOMERA CANADA SCHOLARSKomera
Each of these young women applied to the local Komera office in Rwanda, and was selected by the local government, a school representative and the Komera social worker. They are all talented young women who achieved success in school before being selected as Komera Canada Scholars, but they would have had to drop out, due to financial barriers. Now they are able to concentrate on their studies and their future plans, thanks to donors like you.
Mary studies Math, Chemistry and Biology at Fawe Girls School. She is a smart and social student who loves to study with friends. When home from boarding school, Mary lives with eight members of her family.
Solange studies at Fawe Girls High School with several of the other Komera scholars. Having a large group of students at one school is beneficial because they build a small community by bonding and helping each other out with problems during their sessions with their mentor. Solange pursues a “MEG” course of study, meaning she majors in Mathematics, Economics, and Geography.
