Year-end Gift-a-Smile story #4

December 20, 2022

This week’s REI Smile Story is from Nairobi, Kenya. Anatalia is a refugee from Rwanda who completed the entrepreneurship program supported by REI.  

“I feel lucky to have attended the entrepreneur training because I learnt the skills to make bags and set up my business at home. I can make one bag a day when the children are at school and the income I receive for selling the bags means I can send the children to school. I would prefer to be with my family in Rwanda but I have some security now.”

The training has given Anatalia the opportunity to rebuild some self respect.
