BENEFITING: FOUNDATION RWANDA
ORGANIZER: FOUNDATION RWANDA
I never imagined when we set out to create Foundation Rwanda in 2008 - as an organization and community – we would stand over 1600 mothers and students strong!
I firmly believe nonprofits can and should fulfill their mission. This year, I’ve donated my salary of $70,000 as Executive Director back to our program. Now all we need is your support to meet our goal. I’m asking you to join me in doing something truly awesome –making sure that our final class of 735 students will graduate in 2019 and have a bike to help them get to school.
Foundation Rwanda works with survivors and second generation survivors of the genocide – children born of rape from the genocide and their mothers. They often must travel miles to attend school, access clean water, food and firewood and receive treatment at the clinic or hospital. The money you help raise during our Bike Build crowdfunding campaign will pay for a bicycle and a year of school fees for each of our students, and put them on the road to success. One bike helps 5-10 people in a village access clean water, food, school, medical treatment, and jobs.
Give a bicycle. Give hope for a brighter future.
