This Rwandan Board is responsible for the running of our programmes on the ground. It is composed of four parent representatives, Sifa, Albert, Jeannette and Anastase, two mothers and two fathers elected from amongst the parents of our beneficiaries. Also on is Eric, the Executive secretary of Kigarama Cell, as well as Prince and Jean, two individuals who have volunteered with Children of Rwanda since it began in 2014. Nobody knows what these communities need more the communities themselves. Having a body that represents our beneficiaries at the heart of our decision making process allows us to ensure we are meeting the needs of our beneficiaries.
JeandeDieu has volunteered for Children of Rwanda for the past two years. He now delivers Children of Rwanda’s programmes as an employ, monitoring schools, making sure students are able to attend school, working with children who dropout of school and delivering farming training to local communities. JeandeDieu lives in the communities that Children of Rwanda serves and is so trusted by our beneficiaries that they wanted to vote him on the council as their representative!
