Why Rwanda?

Rwanda…the most densely populated country in Africa…still rebuilding trust after the 1994 genocide…where the average monthly income is $46 per person…with half the population under age 14...and an average third grade education!

Rwanda...with a growing international economy…home to gorillas, elephants, zebra, and volcanoes… whose goal is to become a nation of readers, writers, and analytical thinkers…with a competency-based curriculum introduced in 2016…and with TEACH Rwanda leading the transformation of early childhood teacher education.

Many children in Rwanda still live in large families that survive on subsistence farming. Drinking water is often not available. Hunger is a daily reality. Many children drop out of school by first grade.

TEACH Rwanda is determined that every child in Rwanda have the opportunity to get a good education—especially necessary when young brains are growing!

·         We educate teachers to use modern teaching methods and materials.

·         Our Exemplary Schools serve nutritious snacks, so children’s brains can learn.

·         We supplement school fees, so children living in low-income families can attend school
          during the most important years of development.

Fund a Future—With TEACH Rwanda

Many vulnerable children who COULD attend school do not—because their families cannot afford even low fees. Especially in villages such as Nduba and Rwinkwavu, and even in Muhanga, there are thousands of children who never go to school, or who drop out early.

You can help ensure that many more children from low-income families can attend Bright School! Join us as we Fund a Future so that families living in poverty and who wish to have their children attend a high-quality school have that opportunity.

About half of the families at Bright School benefit from tuition assistance. What can YOU donate?

                $17 a month ($200 a year) pays for one preschool child’s fees

                $25 a month ($300 a year) covers school fees for a primary child

 

If you are looking to make a direct and immediate difference in children’s lives, Fund a Future is for you!
