Yutaka Sho and Nora Hakizimana, a 16-year-old high school student at Christian Brothers Academy in Syracuse, New York will be launching a fund raising campaign with 700 CBA students on Wednesday, February 10.
Nora was born in the Congo while her parents were in exile from Rwanda. When the violence in the Congo began, she moved to Rwanda to live with her relatives. Her parents, however, immigrated to Syracuse, and 8 years ago she moved here to be reunited with them. By a freak chance, Yutaka met Nora, Nora convinced her school master to do a school-wide fundraiser, and those students are going to help build a community center for the ladies in Masoro.
