Care for Kids supports Rwandan Children in Education
Care for Kids organizes charity projects since 2006 in around the world - especially in developing countries. In Rwanda, the organization provides school fees for most vulnerable children, gives school material and support digital learning.
A focus on education
At GS Byumba Catholique, GS Sainte Famille and Muhima in Kigali; teachers, students and parents were happy to receive school bags, and thank the organization.
Bonaventure Habumugisha teaches in Primary 6 at GS Muhima. During the ceremony, he was heading a team of 50 students with their parents to receive school bags and books.
“Students and parents are full of emotions, they want to thank Care for Kids Rwanda, and Brother Emmanuel Bandirimba. May God bless this work, and we hope more for next time”.
Orphans, children from poor families and others with vulnerability get support from Care for kids Rwanda. Around 30 students all over the country regularly receive school fees.
Laptops create educational opportunities in Rwanda, and Care for Kids took over the project management, and the first 100 laptops were introduced and were delivered to the children.
In addition to the playing and creative functions the subject matter of Mathematics, English and Science is provided on the computers.
A computer owned by the student provides highly motivated learning, encouraged to work independently, researching and promoting the interaction and communication within the school and home environment.
During the school holidays, the teachers have been introduced and trained. According to Brother Emmanuel Bandirimba, twelve interns are in 17 schools to assist teachers getting familiar with laptops.
Relief for Children with Disabilities in Rwanda
In Gicumbi, northern province, People in and around Rushaki lack most of basic necessities. Appalling is the situation of people bearing a handicap, especially children.
The Sisters of the Holy Family from Bordeaux run a hospital ward in Rushaki, where they also care for these children. Sometimes the children need to be transported for diagnosis, for surgery, or for receiving artificial limbs. Such treatment can save the life of a child, or enable it to participate in social life.
Many of them thus are enabled to go to school. The tuition fees are often paid by the sisters. For children and adolescents who are not able to go to school, other assistance measures are needed. But the distances are large. Own transportation is not available. The same applies for assistive devices, which help children to be less dependent.
The Sisters do everything what they are able to, but the number of children with a disability is growing. And all the treatments and assistive devices cost money, which is lacking sorely.
