There are many who have reaped the benefits of Father Richard’s Kabingo projects. He has a talent for mentoring young men and women along their career and life paths. The four villagers who are featured share qualities of intelligence, perseverance and invincible optimism. These traits of high character along with hard work have made them, though young, success stories.
To see the importance of accomplished students like Maria, Pius, Joseph and Richard, imagine a great chain of people, young and old, holding hands, one pulling the other out of a huge pit. This pit is poverty and these bright villagers are among the first links of the chain that will continue to grow in their capable hands.
