Stringing Beads for a Better Tomorrow



In the heart of Kigali, and the bustling streets of Nyarugenge, Denyse Wibabara’s story unfolds: a tale of resilience, hope and unwavering determination to survive and thrive. At just 21 years old, this single mother’s life is a testament to the strength of the human spirit.

Born in the Southern Province's Huye District, Denyse's early years were filled with the innocence of childhood, shared with her three siblings under their parents' care. School days and family life were forever marked by constant domestic violence. Their father's abusive behavior towards their mother shattered their home, leading to a separation that would redirect the course of Denyse's life.

With hopes of a fresh start, and with two children to support, Denyse's mother relocated to Kigali, seeking employment and a safe haven. Despite the challenges, Denyse completed her secondary education. However, life threw her another curveball—a pregnancy that led to the birth of her daughter and abandonment by the child's father, leaving them to fend for themselves in an unforgiving world.
