Rwaza Orphanage in Rwanda

Rwaza Funded!

We're happy to report some great news. The Rwaza orphanage is totally self sufficient! From our friend Cathy Emerson:
"It is a dream come true for the children. A couple (both veterinarians) that heads an NGO out of Austria has signed a contract with Father Bonaventure. They have agreed to pay tuition, food and medical for all the children residing at Rwaza Orphanage and they have given Father Bonaventure 20 million Rwandese Francs ($40,000.00 usd) to build a new facility nearer his Parish office. These children are now in the top 25% of income earners in the country. They are fed, looked after, educated and loved. Thank you for everything you did to help these children achieve the lifestyle they now live. "

We're really pleased to be able to report that the Rwaza children are now well taken care of, but there are many kids and organizations in Rwanda who still need help. We've focused our efforts into a new organization called Blue Kitabu. If you're at all interested in helping out in Rwanda, Ghana or Kenya please do get in touch with us and we can put you in touch with an organization that needs your help.

** The Children of Rwaza, while funded, still need continuing help to support their education and food costs, so, if you would like to learn more about how to help these kids more, please contact us here, and we will point you in the right direction.
