Ruanda Stiftung (Rwanda Foundation) is a charitable, nonprofit, public foundation. It was founded in 2007 with the aim of improving the living conditions of poor children in Africa on a sustainable basis and to stimulate entrepreneurship for self-development of society.
The foundation was established with the aim of improving the living conditions of poor children in Africa on a sustainable basis and to stimulate entrepreneurship for self-development of society. Ruanda Stiftung focuses its special attention to projects that inure to the benefit of socially disadvantaged children like orphans, street kids, disabled and sick children or children seriously affected by poverty. The school and secondary education is just as important as basic medical care and the provision of food, clothing and shelter.
Ruanda Stiftung operates on the principle "Help to self-help" by strengthening, for example, the individual initiative of families as long as they can help themselves. The measures range from the allocation of animals to repayable micro-credits for small-scale entrepreneurs.
On all projects the foundation is working closely with local partners, such as local organizations, schools, religious institutions, groups or individuals. The partners are involved in all phases of the project and contribute actively to the success of the projects in personal responsibility.
Ruanda Stiftung works in the following areas: Education, Nutrition and Health.
• Building operations in primary schools with the objective to improve the school and healthy conditions (for example latrines, cisterns, renovation of class rooms)
• New building (for example centre for handicaped children, day-nursery)
• Health insurance for indigent children
• Mircocredits for small-scale entrepreneurs
• Animal husbandry for indigent families
• School gardens in primary schools
• Workshops and information material for the beneficiaries
• Equipement for primary schools and institutions (for example cupboards and shelving, sport equipement)
• Solar projects in primary schools and institutions
