About Help build homes and send kids to school in Rwanda!
Hi! We are a family that decided we wanted to do something to help the countless orphans and widows in Rwanda that remained after the mass genocide in 1994 that left thousands of children and wives without a Dad, a spouse, or support. We have financially helped start five children's homes that house 4 orphans with 1 widow in each home. We also support over 60 kids to go to school. We have partnered with a local pastor who lives in Rwanda who helps us know what areas to build homes in and what children are most at risk. CottageCare Housecleaning has been the main contributor of support to these kids as well as friends and family who have also joined our efforts to support a child. A donation of $20 a month will send a kid to school with books and a uniform. Each home costs about $2,500. All proceeds are handled through CottageCare Housecleaning and 100% of the donation goes to either supporting more kids to go to school, building a new home, paying Rwandan women to teach in the schools, uniforms, food, water, and new ways to improve their conditions of living. I'm setting this up near Christmas so that the kids might be able to get gifts or at least more portions of food. If enough funds are raised, maybe we can even start a new home to gift existing widows and orphans who don't have a home. This project means so much to me because I have been over there and have seen for myself how little they have and how much I have to offer. We don't want to hurt by giving handouts, instead we focus on meeting the immediate needs of food, water, shelter and education so that they can show the world what they have to offer. Each donation puts a kid on the right track to live the life they want to live and give back to the world with only the talent, skills, heart and soul that they have to offer. We want to make sure they have the opportunity to do that by believing in them and giving them that shot.
