We launched our first project in Rwanda in January 2017 and since then we’ve done a lot!

  • An additional 16 kids entered our facility in the past 2-3 months alone. We now have about 31 children who are part of our programs.
  • 9 laptops in total were added to the center to empower the kids through technology and boost their confidence and curiosity.
  • Our Learning Center in Rwanda serves as an after school program to help the kids thrive. Between the time that the school year ends and begins, the kids come to the center Monday-Friday to shower, eat, or take part in individual or group counseling. They also come to listen to guest speakers and play soccer.
  • We’ve moved to a bigger facility with plenty of rooms and space for the kids to play and learn.
  • Our Executive Director & Founder Alphonsine Imaniraguha Anderson was selected as the Cisco 2018 Community Hero; she was featured in the Cisco’s Bridge to Possible Brand Campaign to highlight how Cisco empowers its employees to do good in their communities and around the world.

Let’s keep the momentum going!
