Who We Help
In keeping with the Diamonds Do Good mission of supporting initiatives that develop and empower people in diamond communities worldwide, the organization looks to fund programs that have proven success in providing youth with high-quality education, including leadership development and entrepreneurial skills building.
Youth throughout Africa, Canada and in India's Gujarat State benefit from the education programs we support through its beneficiaries. Here are some of their stories!
Mahoro Chantal Uwiringiyimana grew up in a poor community in Rwanda, but even as a young girl, she saw the value in obtaining an education. “When I first went to school,” Chantal said, “I had one and only purpose: to know how to read and write in Kinyarwanda, my local language.” This dream to educate herself was reinforced in Chantal everyday. Living with an illiterate mother and aunts who had no say in family affairs, she came to believe that in order to be valued in her family and community, she would need to be educated.
