  •   ‘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

The British High Commissioner visits Rwanda Aid projects 
– 17 March 2014 

High Commissioner visit

It was a great honour for Rwanda Aid to welcome the British High Commissioner to visit some of their projects this week. Along with the Vice Mayor he handed the certificates to the girls who have completed their sewing training at Baho Neza Mwana Street Children Village. The girls also received “starter kits” which included sewing machines and other tools and materials which will help them start small business in their community.

Genocide Memorial Week 
– 7 April 2014

Rwanda has made remarkable progress in the last twenty years. After the genocide it was a country on its knees, devastated by a massive slaughter that had torn its society into shreds, and made its people hang their heads in shame.

That it has been able to rebuild so swiftly and successfully is a testament to the strength of the leadership and the courage and determination of its people.

There are still huge challenges to be faced, but I do believe that if we can support good practice, help to bridge the gap between the admirable targets and the reality in the field, and help to build confidence by reinforcing success, there is a chance that Rwanda could build on its remarkable recovery and provide a model for other developing countries. Thank you so much for your help in our endeavour.

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.
