We Are Helping To Rebuild Rwanda

Rwanda is an African miracle. Rwanda was a failed state in 1994. A genocide had just killed a million Tutsi and moderate Hutus, and there was no government, police, hospitals, banks, schools, or even currency. Today, Rwanda is safe, corruption free, and clean with an effective restorative justice program, universal health care, and a democratic government with over 60% women. Yes, a miracle.


Teaching Spoken English to Rwanda’s Teachers

Since its inception, the Rwanda English Project has taught spoken English to over 350 teachers in 17 schools, impacting over 30,000 students. In addition, spoken English is taught to student teachers in 2 teacher training colleges, a rehabilitation center, and two communities (Nyamata and Mayange) to community leaders, bike boys and shop girls. The project is implemented by trained Rwandan school teachers. Initially, they received the spoken English instruction, with those showing higher English proficiency becoming instructors of their teacher peers, and the best of them becoming coaches, managers and finally trainers.

Help Us In Educating Rwanda’s Teachers

Our job is providing financial and technical support as well as a vision for scaling up schools and teachers. This can be very expensive. Rwanda aspires to be a middle-class economy by 2050. They want an educated citizenry to give them a seat at the international table of commerce and diplomacy. The only way we can do this is with your help.
