We congratulate you on the 10th anniversary of your organization and we would be thrilled to celebrate that with a cake!”

Dear Claudine,
The whole JEWISH FOLLOWER GLOBAL WOMEN CENTER AT SUNY & team would like to congratulate you on the 10th anniversary of your organization and we would be thrilled to celebrate that with a CAKE !”

Below  is about  Miss Claudine’s Story !

When she was only 5 years old,

Claudine’s wonderful Mother introduced her to the Youth Catholic Movement where she used to visit and help poor people as well as orphans in Rwandan orphanages.

Because she was exposed to world of God at an early age, Claudine created the joyful and happiness LIFE within. During her childhood, Claudine managed to create or Build a VERY JOYFUL SOUL. She grew up as the most joyful child in her village and in her school, everybody noticed that joy. Even now, you can still feel and sense the  JOYFUL HUMAN BEING.

However, Claudine’s joyful life was interrupted by the genocide in Rwanda which claimed over Million of Innocent TUTSI PEOPLE and Moderate Hutu in just 100 days.

That means that over 10,000 people where being killed each day in her country. During that time, Claudine was only around 14 years old, perhaps 15 years old, and she was studying in the 2nd year at High School of Math, one of the best Catholic schools in Kigali, the capital of Rwanda. To have Claudine here with us today is a miracle!

Miss Marie Claudine MUKAMABANO is a GENOCIDE ORPHAN SURVIVOR who has received recognition from the Assembly of the State of New York FOR TURNING Life of Hardship into One of Leadership and Advocacy.

After losing her parents, sister, cousins, aunts, uncles, grandparents, loved ones, friends, classmates, and fellow countrymen during the Rwandan Genocideher Catholic faith inspiredher to seek the answer to the question of KUKI NDIHO? (Why do I exist?-Pourquoi J’existe?). This question now serves as the name of her organization, which has an extensive fundraising program in New York, as well as a presence in Belgium and South Africa. The thousands of dollars raised thus far continue to support hundreds of orphans in Rwanda.

MESSAGE FROM HERSELF & WHY SHE CREATED THE WHY DO I EXIST ? Project to Heal & Empower Rwandan Orphans.

During the genocide in Rwanda, I find myself jumping over the bodies of the people, children were being killed from my left and right, people were being  shot in front of me. I really didn’t think I’d survive, I thought I’d die like everyone else. Therefore, I took a vow before God. I said, “Lord, if you save my life and I survive, I will do everything in my ability to help Rwandan orphans”.

Before that, my dream was to get a PhD in mathematics because I was really good in it. I was the first young girl in my school to win a scholarship to study Mathematics in the best Catholic school in Rwanda named “College Saint Andrew”. I was brilliant, So I thought nothing would stop me to get the PhD, and invent something which students would learn in school such as inventions of Archimedes, Pythagoras , or like others scientists who invented something that changed the world. It was a big dream for my age but I wanted to leave a legacy. My plan was to call it my full name “Marie Claudine MUKAMABANO”. I could visualize my invention in my dream when I was still in elementary school.

It would have been wonderful to have the students everywhere learning about my invention. So, the moment I made a promise to God to help the orphans, I changed my plan. I said that if God saved my life, I would not get the PhD in mathematics but instead I will study business and establish my organization to raise money, and to help orphans. Economics was my favorite field since it has a lot to do with math, because I really love math.

Due to the lack of the required number of students to study Economics, I was obliged to study business instead.

Claudine’s Healing & Empowerment Dancing with Orphans in Kigali Rwanda, June 2005.

Why Do I Exist? Is a question I ask myself as a genocide survivor and I believe that my existence is to praise God and help others. I believe my existence is to change somebody’s life. I believeit’s my duty to promote peace, and to prevent evil acts by promoting the acts of kindness, andthe benefits of performing God’s holiness.

In September 2005 when I was dancing with the Rwandan Dance Group, and we were talking about the genocide and the survivors in Rwanda. We were planning to figure out our next step as artists to help improve the lives of survivors, especially the orphans, which is my life’s mission. I remember telling Rwanda Super Star Jean Paul SAMPUTU that I wanted to name the organization that reflected myself, something that will make me definitely feel responsible for somebody. It came up in my mother tongue, KUKI NDIHO? “Why Do I Exist?” “Why I Exist?”

Sometimes, we blame other people for our failures; and we sit down with our arms crossed assuming that they will do something to solve our problems. I wanted to do something for the helpless to take responsibility, and make a difference in somebody’s life, because I wanted to acknowledge how God saved my life. That’s how Why Do I Exist came to life. It helped me to fulfill my promises to God, and the vow I made to God during the genocide in Rwanda.

THANK YOU so very much for all my friends and supporters who are helping to advance my Book writing project
Thank you so much for your ideas and guidance. Thank you. Thank you. May God continue to protect and bless you. Peace.
