About Rwanda Girls Initiative (RGI)

The Rwanda Girls Initiative (RGI) was founded in 2009 by Shalisan "Shal" Foster and Suzanne "Soozi" Sinegal McGill, with the vision of helping children for whom education is not easily accessible.

Through months of listening and research, Shal and Soozi formed the vision for the Rwanda Girls Initiative. On a fact-finding trip to Africa, they were struck by the obstacles that stood between the young students and their education. “It broke my heart,” says Shal. “We met so many girls who desperately wanted to continue their schooling, but the opportunities were very limited. Even the girls who did continue to secondary school were burdened by household chores and safety concerns – so they tended to drop out at a higher rate than the boys.” Studying the relationship between education and economic development, Shal and Soozi became increasingly confident in the critical role of education in breaking the cycle of poverty.
