Thanks to a Global Fund-supported program, young people in Rwanda whose lives have been affected by HIV get an opportunity to study. Among them is 17-year-old George, who lost his father in an accident and has a mother who is HIV-positive. He lives with his mother and grandparents and studies computer science:

“I’m so happy because I get education. I want to be a programmer to complete my studies. My father told me that without education, life is not good. This has changed my life. Now I’m also a human being.”
