News from the Rwanda Managers


Rwanda Aid UK visitors
– 8 July 2015

Visit

The head teacher from Vinehall and his daughter were delighted to work with the photographers’ group from Baho Neza Mwana village.

The group was excited to get movies making skills and high definition cameras that will help them improving their photography business. They were also making a promotional film for Rwanda Aid projects.

A team of teachers from King House, Devonshire House and Normanhust schools visited the the schools of Munyove Groupe Scolaire, Isha Primary School and Nkombo Nursery. They taught together with Rwandan teachers and tried to improve teaching skills and methodology.

The same team painted some of the walls for Baho Neza Mwana facilities. Jonas joined the team in painting other walls that the time did not allow them to do. The walls are now looking different and the children love them.

News from the UK Managers 


Ntsinduka school – 27 May 2015

Classrooms

We were delighted to open four classrooms and a washroom block at Ntsinduka school.

As is our practice now, this project was done in partnership with the District and community, and we are enormously grateful to the British and Foreign School Society and the Allan and Nesta Foundation whose funding made this project possible.

Ntsinduka is very remote, a three hour journey, much of it on steep and rugged tracks. This offers a big challenge not only for our Construction Manager, Isaiah, who travels by motor bike twice a week to oversee the work, but also for the builders, who have to transport materials from a long way away and sometimes on peoples’ heads when the “road” is impassable. However, this is a challenge that the members of our team are ready to embrace because they share the Rwanda Aid philosophy that it is important to work where the help is most needed. And at Ntsinduka the classrooms were most certainly needed!

  •   ‘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.’
    Charles Moore, The Telegraph
     
  •   De La Rue has been pleased to support the work of Rwanda Aid, helping with the construction and equipping of classrooms and the support of vulnerable and disadvantaged children. Rwanda Aid provides us with detailed feedback of the work being carried out and offers the opportunity for our staff to become involved with the work in Rwanda.
    Tony Mullen, Key Accounts Diretor, De La Rue
     
  •   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.
    Will Gelling, British High Commissioner for Rwanda
