Mukakarisa has a sad background.  Her father was killed in the 1994 genocide.  Out of fear, her mother never let any of the children out of the house.  Mukakarisa was also denied an education because of this fear and forced into an early marriage.  Mukakarisa has 5 children with her husband.

The fear of her mother has kept Mukakarisa from having anything of her own.  She has always wanted to have something that was her own.  She heard of our program and really wants to learn the skills so that she has ownership over an aspect of her life.  Because of isolation, Mukaskarisa has been denied the opportunity to experience community.  Our program gives her this opportunity to collaborate and move towards a goal with a group of women.  She needs this. Will you help Mukaskarisa?
