Amazing story of Justus, an 8 year-old orphan who survived by eating scraps in the main garbage dump of Kigali in Rwanda: asked by an American woman in a taxi what he wanted, he said “an education”. He got it. Now he is going to Harvard – and is determined to pay it forward by helping the poor in some way. You can read his moving story here.
