Nsengumuremlyi Theoneste, known to us as Theo, and supported by our club for a number of years, proudly shows off the diploma he has finally received.
Theo, a Rwandan orphan amputee, was a recipient of services through  our CORS (Charitable Orthopedic Rehabilitation Strategies) program, which helped bring him to the United States, where his leg was repaired, and he was fitted with a prosthetic leg at Shriners Hospital in Philadelphia.
There was no high school or vo-tech in his area in Rwanda , and those institutions in major cities charged tuition, room and board, which were out of reach for Theo. Without parents, an education and with his physical impairment, he faced a bleak future. Our International Service Committee (ISC) stepped in to help Theo achieve his dream of studying computer science at a private school. His education  was made possible by CORS, and we covered his academic and living expenses, including providing him with a laptop computer. Our club, especially the ISC members,  celebrate with him as he receives his diploma. Now, they report planning to put together a graduation gift for him. Thanks to Ernest Zlotolow, chair of the ISC, for sharing this update and photo.
