The Rwanda School Project’s mission is to provide high quality secondary education in Rwanda. We opened the Rwamagana Leaders’ 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.
“I learned a lot in life and I feel like it is my time to give back.” Alexis, a former street child and student speaker at our first graduation class in 2015, created the Rukundo, a 501(c)(3) Foundation to “provide resources and support for the street children of Kigali to help them leave behind street life, return to school, and receive the education that will allow them to live as self-sufficient adults who are able to contribute to society and achieve their dreams.”

“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. ”
