About us

The foundation Jyambere (“encouraging development”) is committed to underprivileged children in Rwanda, who have no access to education. The project is located in Mahoko, a town in northern Rwanda. We deliberately chose a small town in rural Rwanda. Children in such areas are namely often not reached by the regular aid projects because these usually focus on the larger cities, particularly the capital Kigali. To achieve this objective, we first need to provide basic needs for these children. This includes the financial support of the (foster) parents so that the children have shelter, food and clothing, basic needs to go to school. We also support them in the purchase of school supplies and school uniforms. This support continues until a child has finished school. During mid-term evaluations, the cooperation and school results of the children are reviewed with Caritas. If the collaboration runs smoothly and our financial resources are sufficient, we look at the possibility to help more children to go to school.
