Restoring the Hopeless

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"

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.
