Goal: $52 per student each month
About This Mission Project
Education is the catalyst for change—and change is needed in Rwanda, the most densely populated country in Africa.
The Siera Community Church in Kigali, Rwanda, has created the Children’s Hope for Integrated Livelihood Development (CHILD) project to empower families to become self-sufficient in the long term. This project has partnered with the Student Tuition Expense Program (STEP) to pay for school fees and supplies, especially for widows’ children and orphans.
- $50 pays for primary school or kindergarten tuition for one child for a year in an urban area.
- $100 provides school supplies and tuition for one child for a year in a rural area.
- $250 covers tuition and school supplies for one child for a year in an urban area.
- $500 pays for one student to attend secondary or high school for a year.
Mission Project Specifics
International Ministries seeks to raise $52 per child each month to assist 160 students in Rwanda. This project will empower 100 impoverished and vulnerable families headed by widows and older orphans.
This project will be managed by the Siera Community Church and the Rev. MUTABARUKA Aphrodis. It is anticipated that this project will give children a chance at better jobs and improve the economic stability of their families and communities.
