Rwandan genocide survivor and author launches nonprofit

Jeanne Celestine Lakin

Since surviving the Rwandan genocide and becoming an orphan after witnessing the murder of her parents as a young girl, Jeanne Celestine Lakin has addressed her dark past and enlightened audiences with her memoir, “A Voice in the Darkness.” Furthering her mission to help others, she is proud to announce the creation of her nonprofit, One Million Orphans.

Fueled by isolation and suffering that came from her experience, Jeanne witnessed a new generation of children struggling and decided to dedicate her life to helping. The organization provides care such as food, education, medical aid and counseling to children in need.
