Joselyne Mukakarisa

The Happy Few has sponsored a sister through Women for Women International’s year-long training programme. Our new sister is called Joselyne Mukakarisa and she is from Rwanda! Joselyne is married and the proud mother of four boys and one girl. She is between 41 – 50 years old.

Our sister, Joselyne, has been chosen to join the programme because she faces many forms of hardship in her daily life, which have left her struggling to cope. Getting a place on Women for Women International’s training programme means that Joselyne has experienced things that nobody should ever have to go through – but it also means that she is incredibly resilient, resourceful, and courageous. Thanks to the support of the Happy Few, Joselyne will learn how to earn and save money, improve her family’s health and make her voice heard at home and in her community.

Over the next year, we will be writing letters to Joselyne, supporting her and forming a friendship that transcends continents. We are also looking forward to receiving updates about Joselyne as she progresses through the charity’s training programme and takes charge of her future. We really want Joselyne to know that we believe in her future! She has survived against the odds and now, with support from Happy Few, she has found a safe place where she can build friendships, learn new skills, find her voice, and create a brighter future for herself and her family.
