RW Ubushobozi Women 53.jpg


Margeurite joined Ubushobozi in May 2011. Her parents are deceased, and she had been living under extremely difficult circumstances. She suffered a life-threatening infection, which resulted in the partial amputation of her leg. A small network of nurses volunteering in Margeurite's hometown partnered to get her a prosthetic leg, allowing her to walk without crutches for the first time in years. Margeurite is enrolled in Ubushobozi's weaving program and has become a talented weaver with a unique style. She is beginning to learn to read and write and loves dance and yoga. She has safe, permanent housing near Ubushobozi. Her son, Eric is in Primary school in Musanze. Margeurite has sold many of her woven baskets to visiting tourists. We are so proud!
