Jean de Dieu

Jean de Dieu lives with his single mother and four siblings in Kigali, the capital city of Rwanda. Though situated in an idyllic hilly countryside, Kigali was also the site of the 1994 Rwandan genocide, which left 800,000 civilians dead. Life was a challenge for Jean’s mom raising five children on her own; most of the time, Jean lived with his eldest sister. He managed to complete elementary school on a scholarship, and his secondary education in a government school.

A gifted orator, Jean has always enjoyed taking part in debates. Now a part of the Developing Global Leaders program, he is putting his passion for debate to good use as he studies law at the Kigali Independent University. He wants to use his influence as a lawyer to help his community to become safe and free from crime. He says that as a follower of Jesus, “I believe in justice and want to help people get justice.”
