Children of Rwanda exists to help bring about a world in which the children of Western Rwanda can access and benefit from their universal right to an education.



Due to the expenses of public primary and secondary school in Rwanda, many children in impoverished districts are unable to go to school. The families of these children often face a choice between funding their children through school and acquiring health insurance for their family. In some cases, the families are not able to afford either one.

health insurance

We provide the sponsored children and their families with basic health insurance, giving them access to health centres, doctors and medication. Health insurance costs £2.80 per person per year, and needs to cover the whole family if a single-family member’s insurance is to be valid.
