Kabuga is a rural community in central Rwanda. Most people here depend on farming for their food and income. It is challenging conditions to farm; soil erosion and a lack of water mean crops are often low. 

Living conditions are poor for boys and girls here. There is limited access to safe, clean water, so Malaria and waterborne diseases are common.

Primary schools are overfull, there is limited access to secondary schools, and all schools lack trained teachers.

300 vulnerable children are free from malnutrition with access to cow's milk and improved crop production.


440 students enjoy a better learning environment with new classrooms, furniture and learning materials in 7 schools.


3,847 children took part in a national campaign promoting child protection, children's rights and reporting child abuse.


Partnering together for a sustainable future.

By sponsoring children in Kabuga community, you are making an incredible difference in vulnerable children’s lives.

Your support is helping Kabuga community by improving the physical, emotional, spiritual and social well-being of the most vulnerable children.

Through decades of experience, we have proven that the most effective way to help a child is to strengthen their entire community, caring for every child along the way. In fact, because of these community-focused solutions, for every child you sponsor, 4 more benefit too!

Together, we are tackling some of the root causes of poverty and equipping the community to prepare for the future. We're now building confidence within the community to continue developing their new skills and changing children's lives.

“My siblings and I, along with other children, are being educated for life. Now, we have hope for the future.”
