Rwanda Rising Initiative in 2020

Summary of Activities and Accomplishments of Rwanda Rising Initiative in 2020
We brought more kids into schooling in 2020 than ever before - education and training that they would never have been able to afford. And with this education, like the hundreds of our sponsored kids before, they will find or create sustainable jobs and lift their families out of destitution.

 Six houses have now been built and inhabited since the earthquake in September 2017. The community built the houses, learning as they went along and can now teach others in the community as well. They are very grateful for our support!

The champions came without shoes


A message from John Jordan, a dedicated Oak Bay Rotarian:

A story the club might be interested to hear about. This place is full of hard-scrabble winners.

If they can make a championship out of their field in the jungle, they will make a springboard of the platform we give them. So many opportunities to support here!
Time is going fast. Lots to accomplish first. I am back end Feb. Please see attachment for details

Blessings, John
