Rote was always treated differently in her family. While her other siblings were encouraged to go to school she was not. She was told that she was a burden to the family. She was told “Go to the big city and find a good paying job”. Translation: go sell yourself and send money home. Rote met a missionary by the name of Sheryl with Guardian Village. Sheryl spoke into her life and watched her blossom. Today Rote leads the design team and serves as the Manager. Guardian Village employs about 20 women.
