Welcome to Rwanda
"Restoring the Hopeless - Equipping the Helpless"
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.
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.

C. comes to enrol at school with her father who struggled to walk a long way with his terrible disability. They had no money for any school materials but she is so clever we could not leave her at home. Would anyone like to support her education?
Mary is a very poor, very hard working widow with 2 boys. Provision came for a new roof on an old house but when builders started the work the existing trees were too old to re-use & so a new start had to be made as per photo.
They now live in their small kitchen until the new house is habitable. Somehow we must try to help her move in asap. Total cost of essential work is £900 !
All are very grateful to the supporters who helped to make this house safe again. Thankyou so much. It looks so good.
