Expanding the Ripple Effect: 

Changing the trajectory of two children of refugees

Fifteen-year-old Mmbekalo (“MK”) was born in Tanzania, Africa, after his family fled the Democratic Republic of Congo to escape genocide and political war. They arrived in the U.S. four years ago as refugees, hoping for a better life and education. 

Robbin, age 14, arrived in the U.S. with his family just five years ago after fleeing civil war in Uganda. He is known by those around him to be a friendly, hardworking and outgoing leader with a big personality and a love for adventure.  

While both young men and their families fled terrible circumstances in their respective home countries and settled in San Diego full of hope, adapting to new life in the U.S. has presented its own challenges. 

Both Robbin and MK’s family, like many refugees, were simply assigned a resettlement location. For them, that location is City Heights, an impoverished area east of San Diego, with schools ill-equipped to address the specific challenges and needs of refugee children. While this has allowed each family to be in community with other refugees, it has limited their opportunities to expand their cultural knowledge, grow their vocabulary, and get the education they need to get out of poverty.

“At my other school, I would sit in class, frozen in fear because the pace was moving too quickly for me to take notes and grasp the concepts. At Fusion, if there’s something I am not sure about, I can stop and get clarification from my teachers.”

Congratulations to Peter Ruppert on his new book, “Limitless.”

Why do some people achieve seemingly limitless success while others drift from day to day? How do some, despite extremely challenging circumstances, rise up to make a big impact or achieve great things and others, given the benefit of significant talent or opportunity, end up settling for so much less?

What makes the difference?  This book was written for those, young and old, who simply don’t want to settle for the status quo or for “good enough” and have dreams they want to chase, not give up on.

Net proceeds from the book will go to the Fusion Scholarship Foundation.
