RWANDA

Byumba

Byumba is in the north of Rwanda high in the mountains. It is very rural and the sponsored children are spread over a large area attending many  different schools.
The children needing sponsorship are identified by the church as those most in need within the local community. Our sponsored children here are all cared for within a home environment living mainly with extended family but sometimes with neighbours. Most of these families are already struggling to care for their own children but will still offer a home and family to a child who has no one to care for them. Many children board at school during term time which is the norm in Rwanda due to the remote location of many homes. 
The sponsored children meet together during school holidays when they share a time of worship, recreation and refreshments, receive letters, cards and gifts sent by their sponsors and write letters to their sponsors.
The project is overseen by the Anglican Church of Rwanda.  The church aims to assist with the cost of education and takes an active role in supporting the families and encouraging spiritual growth.

Gasabo

Gasabo

Gasabo is a relatively small Diocese on the outskirts of Kigali, the capital of Rwanda. It is the Diocese of  Laurent Mbanda  the Archbishop of Rwanda.


The children needing sponsorship are identified by the church as those most in need within the local community. Our sponsored children here are all cared for within a home environment, living mainly with their own or extended family but sometimes with neighbours.  Some do go off to board at secondary school which is the norm in Rwanda.  The children are at various different schools depending on where they live and what they want to study at secondary school.


The church takes an active role in supporting the families and encouraging spiritual growth.  Twice a year, all the sponsored children gather at the cathedral to celebrate with a service and a meal.

Kibungo

Kibungo is in the East of Rwanda, the area is remote and rural.
The children needing sponsorship attend Kibungo Secondary School. The school is church run and the youngsters are identified by the church as those most likely to be forced to leave school due to poverty. Our sponsored children here are all cared for within a home environment, living mainly with extended family but sometimes with neighbours. Most of these families are already struggling to care for their own children but will still offer a home and family to a child who has no one to care for them. Many children board at school during term time which is the norm in Rwanda due to the remote location of many homes.

Star School

Star School

The Star School is a remarkable institution that emerged from the desperate need for new schools in Rwanda, especially secondary schools, following the Rwandan genocide in 1994. Bishop Nathan Amooti, then a pastor, had a vision of creating a school that would combine education and faith, and with the support of Mission Possible UK, he was able to make it a reality in 2007.

Education and faith are taught hand-in-hand at Star School, equipping students with the knowledge of how the world works and, more importantly, the God who created it.  The school welcomes students from all backgrounds, including those who can afford the fees and those who depend on sponsorship. Sponsored students come from the most vulnerable and needy backgrounds - orphans, former street kids, or children from very poor families. Many live on campus and receive holistic care, including food, clothing, health care, and education. They also experience the warmth of Christian love, acceptance and friendship from fellow students and support from their teachers.

UGANDA

*Location is approximate for safeguarding purposes.

The Kijjabwemi Orphans Project was established by St Johns Parish Church, Kijjabwemi, Uganda, to assist in the care of the many orphans and abandoned children in their community.

 

Today this care has extended to support many children in need in their parish.  The sponsored children here are all cared for within a home environment, although not always with their own parents. These families, despite their own poverty, will offer a home and family to children who have no one to care for them.

 

The children attend various schools and some may even board at secondary school.


The project is overseen by the Anglican Church of Uganda.  The church takes an active role in supporting and discipling the children and their families.  The children are encouraged to attend the Saturday Club at church where they have a time of worship, learn craft skills, undertake some general chores, have a time of play and are provided with a meal.

Kabwami Kids
Aunt Louise School

Aunt Louise School

Sponsorship at the Aunt Louise School is a little different from other areas. All the children and young people have special needs, for many it is the only home they have. Edward and Louise offer a home and an education depending on ability and need. They have no regular income and they told us, they survive by God’s grace. Support for each child will be of benefit to them all and will primarily cater for their basic needs and medication. The children and young people are unlikely to leave, and your support will be needed for as long as you are happy to continue.
