"Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent” – Anonymous
MARCELINO UWINEZA, an 18 year old girl from Butamwa, Rwanda is one of the beneficiaries of Association des Jeunes de StCharles Lwanga (AJECL) – An NGO in the inner cities of Rwanda focused on offering young girls vocational training in Tailoring.
A combination of family issues and financial struggles put a stop to Marcelino’s schooling about two years ago. In the heat of the plight, the news of AJECL free vocational training came as beacon of hope - to her and the other girls as well.
