The Rwanda School Project’s mission is to provide high quality secondary education in Rwanda. We opened the Rwamagana Lutheran School in 2010 to offer a secure and nurturing school environment that transforms vulnerable youth into future leaders and problem solvers who champion environmental sustainability and social change.
“RLS has prepared me to both continue my education and enter the workforce. RLS has planted self-confidence in whatever I do. Public speaking skills and hardworking skills are weapons I can use to compete with others. Good studying, expeditionary learning, good teachers, helpful students are the products of RLS and if I combine all of them I can continue my education with no problem.”

“My plans after graduation are to seek chances of joining a university either abroad or in the country. The education Rwamagana Leaders School has taught me is to be a very good team player which is necessary to everyday life. This will help me attain a quality and competitive education.”

“One small act of giving can profoundly change the lives of these students, empowering them to make a difference in themselves, in their school, and in their community. Education, compassion and connection are powerful tools that change the trajectory of lives forever. ”
