Rwanda Action is generously funded by individuals, schools, special events, trusts and corporates
We pride ourselves on maintaining close and personal links with our sponsors, and providing detailed feedback.
Rwanda Action has also benefited from the wonderful generosity of many individuals and families, via donations or getting involved by creating their own fundraising ideas.
"Devonshire House is proud to support the work of Rwanda Action. Teachers from Devonshire House go each year to Rwanda to support the teacher training. Devonshire House parents and pupils have raised the money to build new classrooms and facilities at Isha Primary school. Last year the Rio to Rwanda danceathon raised £15,000 and every child danced their way through the day. At the other end of the scale two of our classes each sponsor children at the Alivera Centre for disabled children by bringing in £1 each a month. Plans for next year’s fundraising are underway and, having run, rowed and danced to Rwanda over the past four years, we are trying to think of a new idea!"
"Vinehall School has been keen to support projects supporting vulnerable children, in particular raising funds to help the Alivera Centre for children living with disability and Baho Neza Mwana, the street children's Village. A variety of events and activities are held at the school each year which raise funds to support these projects, ranging from silent auctions and sponsored walks for the school and parents to ice cream sales during school performances by small numbers of individual children."
In addition to this, Vinehall staff, parents and former pupils have travelled to Rwanda to see and assist with projects.
"Wetherby Preparatory School are very proud to help support the inspirational work of Rwanda Action. We have primarily been involved in helping with the education projects through our partnership school, Mwegera, where we have built classrooms. When visiting Rwanda we have also been delighted to assist with the teacher mentor training programme. Most recently our fund-raising has helped to build a dormitory at a teacher training college in Nyamasheke. We have also been able to see first-hand the impact of the projects that Rwanda Action are involved in and greatly enjoy working with the team in Rwanda."
