Rwanda School Project

In 1994, Rwanda was engulfed in a genocide in which 1,000,000 people were killed in 90 days under a Nazi-like regime. The world stood by. Today, Rwanda’s government has expressed a need for secondary education, citing it as one of the top five priorities in the next ten years, but lacking the needed funds. There is a call for leadership by young people with strong critical thinking skills, sound academic and moral training, good science and math ability and a good understanding of teamwork and self-discipline. We opened the Rwamagana Leaders’ School in 2010 to offer a secure and nurturing school environment that transforms vulnerable youth into future leaders and problem solvers who champion environmental sustainability and social change.
