Help support the education of Devotha Uzabumwa and Geofrey Mugisha, now in S5 (11th grade).
This year marks the 11th year that CLC has sponsored students at the Rwamagana Leaders’ School (RLS). We have sent Mission Teams in 2012, 2015 and 2018 and hope to send another group in 2021.
The school has increased enrollment to 178 students and new buildings are being planned. The RSP is launching a building campaign this year to finish the building of the campus which was begun in 2010. In June 2019, a new Head of School, Moses Ssenyonjo joined the school full of energy and enthusiasm. He has recently procured running water and electricity for the school! This means no one runs out of light when studying and water is always available for cooking and washing!
What about our other friends in Rwanda?
Pastor Edward Makara (center of photo) is active in the Refugee Empowerment Task Force, an organization he founded to help refugees fleeing violence in Burundi to better provide for themselves and their families while they live in refugee camps in east Rwanda.
George Kategaya Bagabo (left in photo), former CLC sponsored student is working and going to the University of Kigali pursuing a master’s degree in IT.
Another friend known to all mission team members, a true orphan of the genocide, Ignace Ndutiye (right in photo), a 2017 graduate of RLS is in his third year of African Leadership University.
Bosco Karekezi (center) a former CLC sponsored student, is finishing his bachelor’s degree in Transport and Logistics Management and will graduate from the University of Tourism, Technology and Business in May. He just recently presented his senior project (photo with George). Bosco’s project: The Contribution of Air Transport in Promoting Socioeconomic Development in Rwanda. He also serves on the RLS Executive Committee.
All of these people, our Rwandan friends, have benefited from CLC’s financial support.
During this global pandemic, Rwanda has not escaped the spread of COVID-19. The government had already put in place washing stations at all markets and businesses before the first case was documented. Now there are several cases, more every day. Every household is tasked with having a washing station and everyone is being educated on its importance. This is no small feat for a poor country where clean water is often collected and carried from a well. (See previous post on the Dove and Cross post)
Please keep all of Rwanda in your prayers, as we all battle the spread of this virus. Know that George, Bosco, Edward and Ignace are keeping us in their prayers.
At some point, schools will open again. RLS will open again and Devotha and Geofrey will return and get back to their school chores and their classes.
Please contribute toward this year’s school fees and CLC continued sponsorship.
And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased. Hebrews 13:16
