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 provides secondary education for the poorest of young people through its sponsorship programme thanks to the generosity of its many supporters in the UK and abroad. Currently we support 128 students for school and a small number are able to continue to university through the kindness and ability of their providers.

The Charity also gives some support to two Primary schools in remote parts of the country where pupil numbers have grown very significantly as we have built more classrooms and other facilities.

Rwandan gorillaWe always aim to help - as funds allow - the poorest, widows and orphans by giving out Bibles, food parcels, goats, making African handicraft and other income generating schemes such as selling charcoal with particular focus on rebuilding damaged houses and even building new homes.

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


Grateful email received recently from a past student:
I am Philbert. I am pleased to express my gratitude to Rwanda Restored for the endless supports they offered me from my secondary in senior 2 up to university studies.

I also thank them for different aids given to me in my hard moments.

Today, I am married with two daughters. More importantly and interestingly I am teaching at Gihogwe secondary school which was funded in its establishment by Rwanda Restored.

Thank you very much! May God bless you.


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.

How can I help the work of Rwanda Restored?

Rwanda Restored is totally dependent on donations from individuals and companies. All donations, regardless of size, are gratefully appreciated and can be directed to a chosen project.

Some of the monies raised have been through groups organizing a sponsored walk, swim, bike rides, cake stalls in schools, non-uniform days and many other events.

It is also possible to buy gifts such as goats and mosquito nets which will be handed out to the needy.

You can also support the handicraft centre by purchasing greeting cards and pictures.

You can make a difference. Please help us to help the poor in Rwanda.

Legacies - Please consider leaving a legacy to Rwanda Restored in your will as this could make a massive difference to the work. Further details regarding donations are obtainable through our donation page using Justgiving or Paypal.

"All things are possible with God"

The first boarding students - September 2023

The first 90 boarding students have arrived at the secondary school for the start of the new school year! They bring what possessions they have but no laptops or iPads – unless students in the West.

New intake - September 2023

The first of the new intake being addressed by Biri the Headmaster. We pray that the final number will reach 400 – a huge hope but nothing is impossible. But we do need more sponsors to replace those who have left this scene.

School students - April 2023

The secondary school now has a record number of 370 students. This is simply amazing… but as some sponsors are no longer able to support, several sponsored students may have to finish. Unless you can help us please.
