Rwanda Aid is funded variously by corporates, schools, special events, trusts and individuals.
Rwanda Aid is extremely grateful for the support it receives and it prides itself on maintaining close and personal links with its sponsors, and providing detailed feedback.
- CLS core funding
- De La Rue: schools and vulnerable children
- HSBC: teacher training
- Lifetime UK: vocational training
- Devonshire House School: schools and vulnerable children
Devonshire House is proud to support the work of Rwanda Aid. The school became involved when the Headmistress, Stephanie Piper, moved from King's House School. Teachers from Devonshire House go each year to Rwanda to support the teacher training. Devonshire House parents and pupils have raised the money to build new classrooms and facilities at Isha Primary school. Last year the Rio to Rwanda danceathon raised £15,000 and every child danced their way through the day. At the other end of the scale two of our classes each sponsor children at Ngwino Nawe Disabled Children's Village by bringing in £1 each a month. Plans for next years fundraising are underway and, having run, rowed and danced to Rwanda over the past four years, we are trying to think of a new idea!
Vinehall School has been keen to support projects supporting vulnerable children in particular, raising funds to help Ngwino Nawe Disability Village and Baho Neza Mwana Streetchildren's Village. A variety of events and activities are held at the school each year which raise funds to support these projects, ranging from silent auctions and sponsored walks for the school and parents, to ice cream sales during school performances by small numbers of individual children.
In addition to this, Vinehall staff, parents and even current pupils have travelled to Rwanda to see and assist with projects. The Headmaster Richard Follett has visited several times in recent years (following in the footsteps of former Vinehall Headmaster and Rwanda Aid founder David Chaplin), developing a photography co-operative enterprise project which has progressed to wedding photographs and film making.
- Wetherby School: education
Wetherby Preparatory School are very proud to help support the inspirational work of Rwanda Aid. We have primarily been involved in helping with the education projects through our partnership school, Mwegera, where we have built classrooms. When visiting Rwanda we have also been delighted to assist with the teacher mentor training programme. Most recently our fundraising has helped to build a dormitory at a teacher training college in Nyamasheke. We have also been able to see first hand the impact of the projects that Rwanda Aid are involved in and greatly enjoy working with the team in Rwanda.
