Releasing young prisoners of poverty
into freedom of secondary education.

Can you help us to release many more?

Map of Rwanda

Rwanda Restored seeks the advancement of education of young people in Rwanda by building or improving schools, relieving financial hardship by providing money for food, housing, education, clothes and social support for widows and orphans across Rwanda.

The main focus of the charity is on children, to ensure they are given decent accommodation either with their family or within any boarding schools operating throughout the country.

Rwandan gorillaWe also aim to support the parents of these children, many of whom are widows because of HIV, AIDS and the genocide of 1994. Many of the mothers cannot support their families financially without working as prostitutes. Our aim is to steer them into a safer and productive life by encouraging and supporting local trade in gift items such as cards, embroidery and other handicrafts.

" Rwanda Restored believes that every child has the right to attend school"


We have launched an appeal for food for the hungry in Rwanda. Lockdown means that most cannot work so no earnings are coming in. How can they buy food without money? Many have not eaten for days.

PLEASE can you support this appeal? Details on donating are here on the website. Thank you.

New committee members of Friend of Child sponsored group in our secondary school take over from retiring members and meet up with the school teachers - enjoying Fanta and cake!

Students currently being sponsored at the school
Our “Friend of Child” family (those students sponsored by Rwanda Restored) has grown to 95 students! All are so poor - some without a family or parents. But all are greatly loved and we continue to search for sponsors to maintain a brighter future for so many others who would love to come to our school but do not have the funds.

LATEST NEWS AND NEEDS!!

"All things are possible with God"

Calling all schools to help us build this new classroom block. 60 schools raising £500 would enable us to complete the building! A great way to engage with Corporate social responsibility!
 

Latest building progress - March 2020
Work on the new classroom block has now stopped due to virus, and the adding of beams had almost finished. The next phase is the roof but that will be a big chunk to find at £7000!
 


Latest building progress - January 2020
We are currently needing £4500 to cement the first floor... and after this is done we can proceed to erect pillars and beams ready for ceiling and roof work. When that much needed building is completed it will be home for 64 boys for 36 weeks each year.
 


Painting the school
Government inspectors came last week & told the school to paint the outside of our building. One week later we have started but we need our building fund money to start building a new classroom block anytime soon. We cannot do all the required upgrading. So many priorities!
 


School grounds before cement
Too many students at secondary school - no more available accommodation - so we must build now. Please see how the new block will be when finished - the ground on which it will be built. We need 1,400 bags of cement at £10 each! Can you help us please?
