Our mission

In Western Rwanda, thousands of children are unable to attend school as their families can't afford the cost of schooling. Children of Rwanda is a registered NGO that enables children to return to class and benefit from their universal right to an education in a sustainable way by working with their parents to increase their household income enough to cover the costs of schooling without relying on external help.

How we do it

We work with each family for two years. First off, we provide a bursary to make sure that the children are in school and can access health centres, doctors and treatment. Then, we work with parents, usually the mothers, to create a new source of income from a combination of new farming techniques and fruit production. At the end of the two years, the families are able to generate enough income to cover the costs of their kids schooling and health insurance for their family. This means they don’t need to rely on help from anybody to give their children a better chance in life!

Creating sustainable change

Our projects create sustainable change and a community empowered to give their children the tools to build a better future through access to education.

Sustainability is at the heart of what we do. Every aspect of the project is designed to ensure the new income generating activities are continued after the project ends.

This means ensuring that families are properly trained, equipped and have support from their communities once the project ends. We are only able to achieve this sustainable impact because we are a community owned and led NGO. The projects are designed and implemented by members of the local community.

So Far.

We are a small charity making a big difference! In the last 12 months, Children of Rwanda has achieved so many big things!


Children have been able to benefit from an education in their local primary and secondary schools without putting financial pressure on their parents.


People can now sleep soundly at night knowing that if they were to get ill, they can benefit from the health insurance we have provided for them.


Parents have received important farming training to generate income for their families. This is the first step in becoming financially independent!
