Children of Rwanda is a registered Scottish Charity that provides financial help to children and families in Rwanda by paying directly for school and health insurance costs.
A successful project - This year, with only £12,500, Children of Rwanda enabled 190 children to return or remain in their local schools and will provide health insurance to 845 individuals
A boy is walking along a beach and spots an old man kneeling often and picking up one of the thousands of starfish that have been washed ashore. The old man gently throws them back into the ocean because the sun is out and the tide is so low, that they will die if he doesn’t do this. The boy said, “But old man, don’t you realise there are miles and miles of beach and starfish all along it! You can’t possibly save them all, you can’t even save one-tenth of them. Even if you work all day, your efforts won’t make any difference at all.”
The old man listened calmly and then bent down to pick up another starfish and threw it into the sea and said, “It made a difference to that one.”
There are many more children in these two villages alone that we are unable to help, but we can make a difference to these 190 and their families. Help us make a first step towards securing a better future for these Children of Rwanda.
