Visit by the US Amb. and the UNHCR Rep. Rwanda
It’s already September!! So great to connect again with the GlobalGiving Team, friends, supporters and family through this September report. Many thanks to our donors for your contributions towards our Village of Peace building project.
It was an exciting New Decade as we glided into 2020 with the hope of accomplishing more on our Village of Peace project but the Covid-19 pandemic has halted our progress. In Rwanda, the nationwide lock down came in March as a sudden and disruptive undertaking especially to the educational institutions. The good news is that we had just finished roofing one of the school blocks before the lock down.
Funding for this project has been an uphill task and the effects of the pandemic has made the situation even more dire since funding from donors has dried up. We are currently still using and maximizing the existing space and adapting to the current situation until things improve.
With your sustained contribution and support, we believe every single component and phase in this major project will be completed. Our dream will certainly come true so we can continue providing life changing skills training to the youths so they can become independent and productive members of their community.
