Tuyishime Thierry


Thierry is 14 years old and in 4th grade at Nsinda Ikirezi Primary School. I found him last year in the village sharing with some young children a toy car he had made out of trash and barbed wire that was actually able to steer. Impressed by his engineering skills but disheartened by his lack of English skills which would prevent him from passing any primary school exit exam, I began personally sponsoring him while I was finishing school in the United States. Now, I am seeking a new sponsor so that he can continue at our school. He works very hard and is very well behaved, but his parents are poor and do not have jobs. His father struggles to find work because he lost a leg in the genocide.

If you would like to sponsor Thierry, go to http://www.cten.org/sarahpullen and click donate! Also send me an email at sarahpullen@cten.org to let me know your name and that you would like to be Thierry’s sponsor.
