About This Project
Located 2 ½ hours drive north of Kigali, Rwanda this secondary school is serving about 900 secondary school students. 500 girls board here in completely inadequate dorms sleeping four in each bunk bed. They bathe, using buckets, in an unsanitary brick structure that is open to the air. When we have visited and interviewed the girls they show a determination to get a good education and contribute to their family’s and their country’s future. Our goal is by fall 2009 to complete Phase 1 of the dormitory project which includes a dorm building for about 100 girls and a modern bathing facility with 32 showers, 32 toilets, and 32 sinks.
This is Phase 1 of a four phase project. After successful completion of Phase 1 A Better World will continue to partner with Rwankeri to complete the next three phases of the project.
