Biography

Only 14 years old, Jessica Markowitz has already traveled to Rwanda three times and has been deeply affected by the tales of genocide she has heard from children in the community. Markowitz takes very seriously the need to give back and has spent countless hours working to establish her organization Richard's Rwanda to ensure Rwandan girls receive the education they deserve in a safe and nurturing environment.

Her trips have allowed her to get to know the girls better and assess their needs. She recently designed a tool kit for girls who are interested in starting their own chapter of Richard's Rwanda in their own communities in the US so that more children in Rwanda can be served. her leadership is empowering other students to take on key roles in supporting and growing Richard's Rwanda, while also allowing her to grow and serve as a kind and passionate role model. World of Children funds will be designated to establish a World of Children Library, so the Rwandan girls they support today can be served for generations to come.
