The new Rwanda Aid CEO visit Nyamasheke


Karen Mundy visited the entertainment project at Rusizi bus station, the milling and beekeeping projects in Nyamasheke. It was a rainy and muddy day out on the motorbike. Although they were protected everywhere apart from hands that were used to take photos, she and Jonas were given welcome stings by the Ntendezi bees. Karen was happy for the progress that they are making against different challenges that they are trying to overcome.

Munezero House – 6 September 2015

Munezero House

Munezero House has been a hive of activity this summer, and we are enormously grateful to the teacher volunteers from Devonshire House, King’s House, Lady Eleanor Hollis, Normanhurst, Vinehall and Wetherby schools who have downed tools at the end of a busy summer term to travel out to Rwanda. There were no fewer than 21 teachers in all, and over the years between them they have made over 50 visits to Rwanda, supporting the work with immense enthusiasm and sensitivity. The Rwanda teachers and the Rwanda Aid team love these visits and find them a wonderful boost to morale

  •   ‘Too many NGOs manage to do little in a big way. Rwanda Aid manages to do much in a small way. Its entire commitment is to the people of Rwanda, who recognise this, and now do the great bulk of the work themselves. Its approach is personal, direct and consistent over a long period. This is inspiring.’
    Charles Moore, The Telegraph
  •   De La Rue has been pleased to support the work of Rwanda Aid, helping with the construction and equipping of classrooms and the support of vulnerable and disadvantaged children. Rwanda Aid provides us with detailed feedback of the work being carried out and offers the opportunity for our staff to become involved with the work in Rwanda.
    Tony Mullen, Key Accounts Diretor, De La Rue
  •   Beazley has been a supporter of Rwanda Aid for 5 years now, and over this time we have had the enormous pleasure of seeing our donations being used in a meaningful and practical way. As a donor, you get real ‘bang for your buck’ in the sense that you can actually see your contributions making a great difference in people’s lives.
    Jonathon Gray, Director, Beazley’
  •   I was enormously impressed by the work that you and your colleagues are doing there, in particular by the two "villages" I visited. I have done a fair amount of travelling around Rwanda since I arrived and I can say that those two will certainly stick in my mind as beacons of optimism, positivity, and charity in the best sense.
    Will Gelling, British High Commissioner for Rwanda
