A 58 year old lady Margarita Nyirabanyanga has invested in her potentials to develop the society as she built ten classrooms and eight toilets for students in Bwira sector Ngororero district.
The lady managed to get out of poverty from her creative skills in decorative crafts, and yet became exemplary in society through training fellow women on making decorative crafts.
She started doing crafts during her illiteracy time when she did not know how to read and write but she latter attained the knowledge; a reason why she wishes all Rwandan women to study when they are still young.
She never thought of ever regretting to have missed school but her skill of crafts work opened doors for her when she started traveling to outside countries and failed to communicate with other people as a result of not having leant international languages in schools.
This prompted her to fund the construction of a school with the support of Germans which was even named after her and was acknowledged by President Paul Kagame when he paid a visit on 15 February 2012.
She has not only funded schools but she has also funded the construction of houses for 15 widows who lost their husbands in the 1994 genocide in Bwira sector, chahafi village. She is soliciting for supporters to supply clean water in those houses after lacking enough funds to do it all alone.
Women in Ngororero district are very proud of Nyirabanyaga for her great developmental contributions to the society, and she encourages all women to strive for development.
