Thank you for your donations and we would like to report the activities undertaken during the last quarter.
Children from vulnerable families supported by the Aspire Rwanda project are delighted to have access to school materials that will enable them to better return to school.
This first phase of the project, which operates in Gasabo district, with a particular focus on poor families.
According to the project, the sponsored students receive school materials and those who could not continue their studies have the opportunity to receive Technical vocational trainings.
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, families have been hit by severe poverty and some children have dropped out of school.
Students are given school materials
A mother of five has a child supported by Aspire Rwanda, she was happy to receive her child's materials, and affirmed that if her child didn't have the chance to be supported, she wouldn't return to school.
"Children are dropping out of school because of families’ poverty in this area, it is a privilege for me to have this support, so I am very grateful to Aspire because my child will not miss school," she said.
The students' supplies include bags, notebooks, pens and hygiene items for the high school students.
In addition to school supplies, the Aspire project help children who have not been able to continue their education, with Technical vocational trainings in different schools that lead to employment.
The children are monitored and when there is a problem, they seek solutions together for the betterment of these students.
“Through this project, we work well together with schools, we often see them because they follow up on sponsored children and this is important because the children are ours" Aspire staff said.
CEO of Aspire Rwanda reminded them that the opportunities they have been given should not be wasted, that they have to work hard and get the skills that will give them jobs to help themselves and their families
one of the Hairdressing students, says his goal is to graduate from this school with the skills to get a job to help his family out of poverty.
These students will graduate in one year, but the Aspire project also plans to support them with short-term internships, which will allow them to enter the job market with all skills needed.
