Habimana Andrew started working when he was ten, harvesting tea and working quarries in his native Rwanda. He had to combine work and school to feed his family. Then he left school completely when his mother died of cancer, leaving only him and his sister to take care of a seven-month old baby. “There was nothing to do apart from dropping out of school," Habimana said. "My older sister also dropped out of school and she was the one to provide meals. I was also the one to take care of the baby and we had to forget about school. But now, thanks to the REACH-T project, I am happy, because I am back to where I should be: at school.”
