Betty was nineteen at the time of the Genocide. She spent the early part of the genocide hiding in a banana plantation with her brothers who both had their legs cut as a form of punishment. At the time, her father was working as a gardner at the French Embassy which was protected by military guards so Betty and some of her siblings made the dangerous journey to the Embassy, she survived but maintained a gunshot wound. After the Genocide, Jane found Betty at church and saw that she was too poor to eat so she brought her to the Amahoro co-op so that she could send her siblings to school. She now has two kids and hopes for them to one day graduate from college.
