News from the UK Managers 

Ntsinduka school – 27 May 2015


We were delighted to open four classrooms and a washroom block at Ntsinduka school.

As is our practice now, this project was done in partnership with the District and community, and we are enormously grateful to the British and Foreign School Society and the Allan and Nesta Foundation whose funding made this project possible.

Ntsinduka is very remote, a three hour journey, much of it on steep and rugged tracks. This offers a big challenge not only for our Construction Manager, Isaiah, who travels by motor bike twice a week to oversee the work, but also for the builders, who have to transport materials from a long way away and sometimes on peoples’ heads when the “road” is impassable. However, this is a challenge that the members of our team are ready to embrace because they share the Rwanda Aid philosophy that it is important to work where the help is most needed. And at Ntsinduka the classrooms were most certainly needed!

Micro-teaching at Teacher Training and Goodbye to Rwanda – 01 August 2014

DHS Teachers BlogOur last morning of the teacher training course gave the teachers an opportunity to put into practice some of their newly learnt methodology in a micro-teaching session.  It was clear that Jo's Mind Mapping session had been a hit with the teachers as almost all of the groups included an element of the brainstorming technique.  Group work activities also played a large part in the mini lessons, with the teachers playing the role of pupils with great enthusiasm!

  •   ‘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.

  •   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
