Testimonial of a Rwandan Teenager Orphan Girl :
“For children like us who live in child headed households, when we have no parents, we live under very difficult conditions; life is very hard and there are times when we are actually even starving,” says Justine a 14 Years Old Teenager Orphan Girl lives in Rwanda.

According to the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF), there are more than one million orphans in Rwanda. The highest proportion of these were orphaned as a result of the genocide in 1994, however since then, increasing numbers of children are being orphaned as a result of HIV/AIDS.

It is common to see older children raising younger ones by themselves in post-genocide Rwanda today. After the genocide, Rwanda had among the highest proportions of child-headed families in the world — some 42,000 households struggling to raise an estimated 101,000 children.

Many of these children do not go to school or eat regularly. Some, as a result of the widespread rape during the genocide and the increased spread of HIV/AIDs, are now falling ill themselves. Many are at risk of exploitation and abuse. It is a generation that has lost its childhood and whose future is very much at risk.

One of the greatest challenges facing Rwanda today is how to care for its massive population of orphans.

“For children like us who live in child headed households, when we have no parents, we live under very difficult conditions; life is very hard and there are times when we are actually even starving,” says Justine. ORPHANS GIRL 14 YEARS OLD

According to the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF), there are more than one million orphans in Rwanda. The highest proportion of these were orphaned as a result of the genocide in 1994, however since then, the increasing numbers of children are being orphaned as a result of HIV/AIDS.

It is common to see older children raising younger ones by themselves in post-genocide Rwanda today. After the genocide, Rwanda had among the highest proportions of child-headed families in the world — some 42,000 households struggling to raise an estimated 101,000 children.
Many of these children do not go to school or eat regularly. Some, as a result of the widespread rape during the genocide and the increased spread of HIV/AIDs, are now falling ill themselves. Many are at risk of exploitation and abuse. It is a generation that has lost its childhood and whose future is very much at risk.
Tens of thousands of children in Rwanda are forced to make a living on the land without help from adults. For the past seven years, UNICEF in conjunction with the government of Rwanda have been helping children gain specialized skills in agriculture and providing them with tools and other supplies.

6. Your personal history:

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 other 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 make the students everywhere learn 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.
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 believe it’s my duty to promote peace, and to prevent evil acts by promoting the acts of kindness, and the benefits of proclaiming God’s message by living according to His will.
In September 2005 when I was dancing with the Rwanda 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 our failures on other people; and we sit down with our arms folded 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 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.
