Francois Duniya

Assistant Director of Operations and Finance

"It is a big pleasure to work at Root Foundation as it is a big space for learning and an interesting workplace with people eager to help vulnerable children and youth. This workplace opens my eyes and mind about the reality of the struggle some people are facing which motivates me to give my contribution in some aspects."

Tuyishime Providence

Operations Officer and Parents Facilitator

"Being a volunteer with the task of an Operations Officer and Parents Facilitator at Root Foundation gives me an opportunity to change people's lives and at the same time to improve my personal and professional development. It gives me the satisfaction of playing a role in someone else's life, helping street children who may not be able to help themselves. It is a way of giving back to my community while developing important social skills, leadership skills, and gaining valuable work experience at the same time."
