  •   ‘Too many NGOs manage to do little in a big way. Rwanda Aid manages to do much in a small way. Its entire commitment is to the people of Rwanda, who recognise this, and now do the great bulk of the work themselves. Its approach is personal, direct and consistent over a long period. This is inspiring.’

  •   Beazley has been a supporter of Rwanda Aid for 5 years now, and over this time we have had the enormous pleasure of seeing our donations being used in a meaningful and practical way. As a donor, you get real ‘bang for your buck’ in the sense that you can actually see your contributions making a great difference in people’s lives.
    Jonathon Gray, Director, Beazley’
     
  •   I was enormously impressed by the work that you and your colleagues are doing there, in particular by the two "villages" I visited. I have done a fair amount of travelling around Rwanda since I arrived and I can say that those two will certainly stick in my mind as beacons of optimism, positivity, and charity in the best sense.

Back in Bweyeye – 01 February 2014

Staff viewing a World mapAfter a wonderful Christmas break in the UK with our friends, family and having made the most of all the delicious food we dearly miss, we said our emotional goodbyes and headed back to Bweyeye. With the benefit of hindsight, we arrived back in the village armed with curry paste, pasta sauces, chocolates and other tastes of home.
