RCEF Students say “Thank You” to their Sponsors

The students put on their best clothes and were excited to make the trip to the RCEF Office in the center of Kigali! The Staff took photos of each student as they wrote heartfelt “thank you” letters to their sponsors.

During these past two weeks, the RCEF students have been on trimester break. Now they have started the last trimester of the school year, which ends in July. This has been a trying year for everyone with the Covid epidemic. The school year has stopped and started several times because of Covid.

Fabrice, the student pictured above, is going into the 6th grade in September and needs a sponsor. Fabrice lives with his mother and father, who are survivors of the genocide against the Tutsi that happened in 1994. His father is disabled due to injuries sustained during that time. There are five children in Fabrice’s family. This family is very poor and cannot afford the costs to educate their children.

The cost to sponsor Fabrice is $325 per year. This provides school fees, school uniforms, health insurance, supplemental food for the family and gives the parents an opportunity to receive a micro-finance loan through our Rotary Grant partnership to start a business.
