In Rwanda, public education is affected by a severe lack of resources. Because of this, kids from the poorest backgrounds often receive a poor education and don’t get the chance to escape from the poverty that surrounds them.

Kigali Christian School (KCS), a private school operated by Rwanda Youth for Christ, provides excellent education to train leaders in all fields to move Rwanda forward — not only helping the children and their families, but the country as a whole. The vision is to raise a generation that has a heart for peace, equality & justice. Students are empowered by the knowledge that someone loves them and believes in their future, restored hope in often-hopeless circumstances, and receive tools to break the cycle of poverty. Student sponsorship has allowed KCS to offer scholarships to children who otherwise could not afford the quality education that they provide.

Since 2006, people from the Youth for Christ family around the world have been partnering with KCS to help them educate this new generation of Rwandan students. Greater Vancouver Youth Unlimited collaborates with Rwanda YFC & KCS to facilitate sponsorships from around the world, supporting KCS’s vision for quality education regardless of socio-economic status. Student sponsorship has allowed KCS to offer scholarships to over 400 children who otherwise could not afford the quality education that they provide. KCS is growing. With a second campus in the rural area of Rwamagana and the vision to build another school in the North, there are currently 1700 students enrolled at KCS.

It costs approximately $600 a year to support a child’s education at Kigali Christian School. Sponsoring a child for $50 per month helps provide school supplies, lunch every day for students who might not otherwise have a decent meal, and an excellent Christian education by loving teachers. By sponsoring one of these students, you can be a part of the change, giving them the key to their future — a good education in a loving and respectful environment.
