Unlike Canada, schooling is not free in Rwanda and what there is, is often not of a high standard. Unfortunately it is way beyond the cost of poor Rwandan families, which means that kids from the poorest backgrounds are never given the chance to escape from the poverty that surrounds them. It is for this reason that Greater Vancouver Youth Unlimited has partnered with Kigali Christian School.
As you can imagine, many of the things we take for granted are not available in Rwanda and the schools resources are very slim. Therefore, we are planning to send a container of much needed equipment to the school in April that will include items such as art, stationary and sports supplies, essential equipment for a science lab and key items for core curriculums such as text books.
We would like to ask for your help for any donations of equipment and supplies from the list below that you are able to make. If you are unable to donate supplies, we are able to offer a tax receipt for any financial donations, 100% of which will go towards this project.
For more information, please contact our central office at 604.590.3759.
Thank you for your consideration.
