Mission Rwanda is a Scottish Christian charity set up to help the people of Rwanda in their struggle against poverty. The genocide of 1994 claimed the lives of some 800,000 people and created problems which are still being felt today.
We are working with children in schools and orphanages to help develop their education and quality of life. There are many children in Rwanda who do not attend school because their parents’ income is insufficient to pay the fees.
The charity is are also working with individuals and groups who are engaged in what are known here as income generating activities. The vast majority of people in Rwanda either have no income or earn very little. A typical day’s wage for a labourer is £1 – £2 and many find it difficult to buy even basic foodstuffs.
