Through the books supporters will be donating the women of the Akilah Institute will be able to enhance their English reading skills.

I was raised in a household in which women were celebrated and it was a known fact that women could do everything and anything that men could do. With that sense of empowerment I have always been proud to be a woman. From a young age my mother has told me stories of all the strong females in our culture, like Eleanor Roosevelt and Rosa Parks. Without knowing it she became the woman that I was most inspired to emulate. When she came to me asking if I wanted to help out a school of women in Rwanda that who are training to work in the hospitality industry, I of course jumped at the opportunity. My goal with this fundraiser is to help Project Akilah enhance their library for the women. I would like to fill it with books that have strong women characters to show these women what is possible. Earlier this year a Michelle Obama biography was sent to Africa and the women loved it. I want the women to be proud of who they are and feel empowered to stay in school and to keep dreaming. If you have any questions about the type of books or any general questions please contact me Sarah Hunter at sarah.ann.hunter@gmail.com
