A new year with new chances to succeed

This proud community of Bugesera is doing well with their Micro finance project. Thank you to everyone who donated money towards the goats! Why Micro finance? It creates economic sustainability and self-reliance for the people in Bugesera District hashtag#Rwanda. It allows people to earn their living through informal markets and self-employment by creating and operating their own small enterprises. Financial services can empower individuals economically and socially by allowing them to better manage their lives. It can also help them to better integrate into a country’s economy by actively contributing to economic growth while giving them a stake in their communities.



Miracles happen and only Maria from Bugesera can say that at this time of the year! She was practically homeless...a dollar or so a month for her one bedroom rent living with her 3 children. 
She touched our hearts the first time we laidy eyes on her and thanks to Pam and Blair who continued to follow up on her she now just got a key to her own home today as a Christmas gift. Thank you to all who got involved in helping Maria find meaning to her life again. God bless.

Blair Lane

Music written at home and recorded mainly in Nashville alongside long-time co-conspirator/producer Peter Daniel Newman and ace Music City session hands who’ve recorded with everyone from Tim McGraw and Brad Paisley to Keith Urban, Only One and When Life Gets In The Way of Living neatly chart Lane’s songwriting evolution. The recordings also point, compass-like, towards what’s next. Check out his website for some of my favorite music he has worked on: blairlanemusic.com That's What I'm Talkin' About: Listen on YouTube, My Whole World, Love Always Wins
