River Lakey was found in a ditch just hours old outside a home in Kigali, Rwanda. At the age of 4 he was adopted by Jimmy Lakey and brought to the United States. It was that moment that Jimmy made a promise to him to help as many of the children of Rwanda as possible.
Since his adoption, River has always known Rwanda is where he is from, but he never understood that it was also his home. Nor did he understand fully the promise his dad made to him and the impact the non-profit organization named after him would have on the people of Rwanda. On his most recent trip back to Rwanda (now as an 18 year old young man) he had a different perspective and understanding of his home of Rwanda and the work that River's Promise is doing to help the people there climb from the pit of poverty through education.
He is now ready to take the baton and help lead River's Promise into the future to continue to help the people of Rwanda through education, faith in God and the belief that dreams do come true.
