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.

  • Brilliant students with 100% marks are too poor to get to school. Widowed mum – & homeless family. We want to help but…
  • 3 students are desperate for school. Fathers deserted their mothers & now so poor. Students have good ability. We want to help but…
  • Are you able to sponsor a student? We have a new scheme whereby you may donate £3 / $5 per month and join other sponsors on a joint sponsorship of a student; otherwise £18 / $25 per month will sponsor a day student or £27 / $40 per month will sponsor a boarder.
  • We have an urgent need to assist a Rwandese man who is being persecuted because of his faith and requires hospitalisation for psychiatric trauma.
  • Thank you to St. Sampsons High School for supporting Rwanda Restored at your Christmas carol service. We aim to buy clean water & handwashing facilities for the dining room in our secondary school. Any money left over will be used for continuing to build staff & visitors toilets.

Graduation - Dec 2017
Claudine has graduated. No parents - much poverty - but has achieved so much - all thanks to the LORD & her very kind sponsor

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.

Mary's house - May 2017
Mary could not afford to have mud bricks made for her house so has filled in the spaces between the wooden supports with mud herself, but she needs funds to cement the outside and the floor of her house. She also needs £60 to buy new roofing sheets for the kitchen that is presently leaking badly and where she is living with her son until her house can be completed.
