When you overcome Your OWN FEAR and Self Doubt, You create something very meaningful to Make A Difference in the LIVES of many people Some you know and some you may not have known.


Every time I see this Picture below which was taken in New York City back in 2008 where I was Giving LECTURES to American Graduates Students from my Own EXPERIENCE on How To Create,

Image may contain: 3 people, people standingEstablish and Build a Charitable Humanitarian Organization without a big connection or a lot of money , I am amazed. Because, when I created my Peaceful Humanitarian Organization in 2005, WITH A MISSION TO HEAL AND EMPOWER R RWANDAN ORPHANS; I had no idea that One day , I will teaching American Students how to do what I had done,
Why?
Because I created my Organization without knowing what I was doing,
I just DID IT.


Because , My audience members from my Dance Performing Arts were telling me , you have to establish a Charity if you want to help ORPHANS in Rwanda. This is America, it is not Africa.
Then I said; OK, If that is what I must do in order for me to fulfill my Promise to God of helping Orphans, I have to do it. I don’t know how I am going to do it BUT I MUST DO IT BECAUSE MY NUMBER ONE GOAL HERE IS TO HELP RWANDAN ORPHANS.
By creating a Charitable organization is what I have to do now to be able to help Rwandan Orphans, then I am obligated to do so.
Let me do it NOW.
I don’t know what I am doing, BUT I guess I have to start pulling up my Childhood experience of helping poor people with Catholic Youth Movement in Kigali and do the same thing because Charity is the same every where, then I started. Like NIKE Always say ” JUST DO IT.” I DID !!.
THEN, One day in September 2005, I was sitting with Rwandan Super Star Jean-paul Samputu with Ingeri Dance Troupe after Our Rwandan Music ,Acting and DANCING performance,
I told them, I want to create something and I will give it a name which needed to reflect my Own Responsibility,
I went deep and deeper inside of me , I said; Lord ,GIVE ME A NAME TO CALL MY PROJECT, I need a name , name , nameeeeeee
then KUKI NDIHO? WHY I EXIST? Came to my mind, I said : This is it. KUKI NDIHO?
That is How KUKI NDIHO Foundation was created in 2005,
I was immediately inspired to write a Poem about it KUKI NDIHI Poem
Then KUKI NDIHO SONG,
When I was in studio talking to one of my producers , we stared to sing KUKI NDIHO in English.. it didn’t sound very good to sing just  WHY I EXIST ? then we came up with WHY DO I EXIST ? just for the music rhythm. Then from that moment it became WHY DO I EXIST instead of just WHY I EXIST.
So,
I created KUKI NDIHO FOUNDATION.- WHY DO I EXIST ? KUKI NDIHO RWANDA ORPHANS SUPPORT PROJECT
Before I knew it, I was getting speaking invitations to Churches to share my testimonies of How God protected my Life and How I got the courage to help Other Orphans while my self needed help. After my speaking engagements, church were creating opportunity to support my Charity by giving Donations, Shoes, School Suppliers and so on… I continue to request speaking engagement opportunities here and there to share my life experience and what inspired me to create my Foundation KUKI NDIHO ? WHY DO I EXIST ?
Many local Communities, Organizations invited me to speak; UN Agencies, Universities, Colleges, High Schools, Community based organizations, Rotary Clubs…..
ALL THESE BECAUSE I ALLOWED GOD TO HELP ME HONOR MY PROMISE TO HIM OF HELPING ORPHANS IF HE PROTECT MY LIFE DURING THE GENOCIDE IN RWANDA. My FAITH INSPIRED ME TO CREATE MY HUMANITARIAN ORGANIZATION in OCTOBER 2005 without a lot of money or big Connections
I continue to give Thanks to God and I am just amazed on the many special ways my Creator have been using my Gifts, Wisdom, Courage and Spirit of Never Giving Up . Praises to the Almighty God
On the Picture below as you can see, I was seating on the same Lecture table with Baruch College Professors of Graduate School of Public Affairs
When one of the professor invited me to be on the panel, I said: I will love to be there to SHARE with Your Students BUT I am not as Professor, yet.
He replied, We need your Life Experience because we teach Theory but You have already created your Own Charitable Organization without attending our school, Having you on our panel , to help us give a lecture will benefit our students very much because you will be sharing with them your practical way of doing things and your will be a wonderful role model for them because You have been doing what they are DREAMING TO DO ONCE THEY FINISH THEIR STUDIES here at Our College.
We really need you to educate them on the subject because, you came to America in 2005 as an immigrant without having a lot of money or big connections in America, But YET, You fulfilled Your heart desire of Creating your charitable Organization to Heal and Empower Rwandan Orphans without any fear or self doubts, we want our students to be inspired by your boldness, courage and Your Own Personal Story of Surviving genocide in Rwanda as a teenage orphan girl is INCREDIBLE. Its has its OWN POWER to impact many LIVES.

DON’T WAIST YOUR PAIN KUKO “UKIZE INKUBA ARAYIGANIRA.”


Use YOUR PAIN TO EMPOWER YOU !

The pain we go throughout in life, sometime came to teach us, to inspire us to provoke our inside Power we didn’t even knew that we have.
I have realized that,

WHEN WE PRAISE GOD INSTEAD OF JUST COMPLAINING, CRYING in spirit of making the situation worst….
When we manage to calm down our Soul and tell our Spirit. RELAX… ITS NOT THE END OF YOUR LIFE, YOU ARE NOT FINISH YET, YOU ARE STILL ALIVE,, THIS TOO SHALL PASS….
If we can manage to calm down in that situation, Our In-wisdom.. Start to grow and show us the way out, before we know it ,, my God already created the way and paved the way for us to go to our NEXT LEVEL.
Because BOTH, GOOD and BAD COME TOGETHER , Its up to you to choose which one is good for You according to what you want to achieve and where you are going.
Most the time we miss opportunity to achieve our goals accordingly, NOT because we don’t have opportunity to do so, BUT BECAUSE WE MISSED THE TIMING FOR THE OPPORTUNITY.
What I LOVE ABOUT MY CREATOR, IS HIS ABILITY TO RE-CREATE MY OPPORTUNITIES AGAIN, AND AGAIN AND AGAIN, BECAUSE HE IS THE WAY MAKER.
I am forever Grateful. Alleluia , Amen. Dr. Marie Claudine MUKAMABANO, Ph.D. in Humanities

SCHOOL FEES PROBLEM

People blame someone for not going to school yet this shouldn’t be the case since failure to go to school resides in one’s inability to get school fees.

Sometimes a student may be away from school throughout the academic year or during the examination period not because the student doesn’t want to be at school but because of the lack of school fees. Needy families find it hard to cater for their children’s school fees and this leads to their children being denied chance to write the exam. Sometimes students are denied chance to take exams not because of their poor performance in class but because of the lack of school fees.

KUKI NDIHO EXECUTIVE TEAM in RWANDA asked one of the students who were denied chance to write the exam as a result of lacking school fees, and she was asked to share her feelings after being denied chance to write the exam and she said, “The fact that I’ve been denied my chance to write the exam, not because I’m weak in class, but because of lacking school fees has saddened me and left me heartbroken because I consider this the denial of rights though I hail from a poor family.

I don’t think denying me the exam as a result of failure to pay school fees is the right way to go. I don’t perform poorly in class. So, I should have been allowed to sit for the exam like any other students because poverty is not a sin.” It is true that poverty is not a crime. That is why KUKI NDIHO FOUNDATION does whatever it takes to comfort orphans and children born of genocide survivors since the inability by these parents to fend for their children’s education triggers most of these children to resort to drug abuse; others become street children as a result of lacking means.

As KUKI NDIHO was founded and mainly supported by a genocide survivor, Dr. Marie Claudine Mukamabano, she easily understands the problems orphans go through as a survivor of the 1994 genocide against the Tutsi in Rwanda. Her ability to have braved the waves and fight the problems she has encountered since her childhood until her adulthood, those who insulted her, cursed her, blackmailed her, but most importantly she cannot forget those who bestowed their kindness upon her. She is thankful to the Almighty God for His love, grace and mercy and she owes her existence to His grace. This is the reason for which she clearly understands orphans’’ problems and those of those born of orphans. She clearly understands their tears and unceasing sorrow. With the Almighty God’s help, Dr. Marie Claudine MUKAMABANO recently initiated the Bank for Orphans with a view to cater for orphans’ education and encourage their relatives to be job creators and invest in entrepreneurship since this is believed to be the right option for them to effectively confront the dire poverty they are plunged in. Besides, the initiative will play a pivotal role in counteracting trauma and mental disturbance for some which sometimes lead to suicide.

May God stand by us the way He did over the last period of time. May His guiding star enlighten our path forever and ever!
