Printer-friendly versionSend by email

Nyirambarushimana Devote takes this opportunity to give her daughter, Uwimana Grace advice, for she wants Grace to live a better life than she did. She says that the most important thing is to work hard and to always cooperate with others. Nyirambarushimana Devote emphasizes that if you work well with others you can achieve much more than if you work only by yourself. Uwimana Grace is thankful for this advice, and she offers to help her mother to support the family.

“I think that one can get developed by having love and associating himself with others. This is because no man is an island; when you work and collaborate with other people, that is when you can achieve much and make poverty a thing of the past. As you can see, I have tried to bring them up until now so that they can stand firm and work to sustain their lives. They are my children, and I cannot abandon them.” Nyirambarushimana Devote

“It has greatly helped me. Because of what she has been telling me, I could ask her for permission to look for things that could sustain us in order to supplement her efforts.” Uwimana Grace
