Getting involved with Rwanda Aid is easy, and there are lots of different ways to do it, from fundraising and events, donations and partnerships, to supporting and sporting Rwanda Aid Crafts. We’re here to help you get involved however you want to do it!
Without you and Rwanda Aid’s community of supporters, we would simply not be able to carry out the work we do and help provide a brighter future for Rwanda. All donations, no matter whether big or small are gratefully received.
Some donors prefer to give designated funds and we are usually able to accommodate this, but it is also extremely helpful to have undesignated funds as this allows us the flexibility to direct the funds where they are most needed.
How your money can help change a life:
- £1 a day Provides a disabled child with residential accommodation, an education tailored to their needs and training on disability for their family.
- £5 Sends a needy child to school for one month.
- £25 Provides safe accommodation and schooling for a vulnerable street child for 1 month.
- £30 Buys a goat, pig or chickens for farmers who have proved their skills at a Rwanda Aid livestock farm training.
- £100 Provides a sewing start-up kit, including a sewing machine and basic seamstress materials.
- £100 Trains a needy subsistence farmer to increase yields through developing a kitchen garden and composting techniques.

THE ADVENTURES OF MINI BATMAN…and a scooter
Mini Batman, aka Gabriel Davies, is just 5 years old. After learning about Rwanda from his teacher at Devonshire House School, Gabriel turned to his dad and said ‘I want do something to help the people over there myself’ in Rwanda to get the food they need so they can live a happy and healthy life.
Gabriel’s plan was to complete a sponsored scoot across London dressed as Batman.
On Saturday 29th September 2012 Gabriel donned his mini cape and mounted his mini Bat Scooter and began his epic journey scooting all the way across London. He started at Tower Bridge, made his way along the South Bank and ended his mission at Trafalgar Square. Gabriel raised an amazing £1,312 for Rwanda Aid.
Rwanda Aid founder David Chaplin recently visited the project in Rwanda and met another mini Batman aka Eric. At six years old Eric is very small because his parents live in poverty. Eric doesn’t get much to eat. Rwanda Aid is going to use some of the funds Gabriel raised to help Eric’s parents find employment so they are able to ensure Eric has a meal each day.
Rwanda Aid builds long-term partnerships with corporate organisations working together to support core projects and maximise their impact.
These partnerships are key in delivering essential hope and opportunity to the most vulnerable and disadvantaged in the remote South-West of Rwanda, where NGO support is limited.
We are currently supported by Beazley, De La Rue, HSBC Global Education, Lifetime UK and Vitol.
Our partners know that working with us brings corporate benefits and we work closely to provide regular updates in the form of newsletters, films and presentations.
Members of staff from our corporate partners are invited to become as involved as suits them. This can take many forms:
- Gift programmes. Staff at De La Rue have prepared Christmas shoe boxes packed with gifts for street children and disabled children
- Fundraising events. Previously our corporate supporters have climbed Mount Kilimanjaro, run marathons and ski-dived!
- Volunteer in Rwanda. Staff from our corporates have been out to Rwanda to help with the work, mainly supporting the Rwandan management team
