CITW Rwanda & Community Update From Wilderness Magashi – April 2023

In April the third and last term of this school year in Rwanda started – a great opportunity for Children in the Wilderness’ Aline and Ingrid to visit our partner schools and the surrounding villages.

The Eco-Club at Akayange Primary School welcomed Aline and Ingrid for one of their Club sessions. As a surprise, all 60 students were given a new CITW Club t-shirt.

Productive meetings were held with the Akayange Community Committee on the same day, discussing upcoming projects for the schools and for the surrounding village.

In Akayange village there has been a baby boom of goats! Last year Wilderness and CITW distributed 135 goats to disadvantaged families. This project is managed and implemented by the Community Committee and it was agreed that the first-born goat would go to another family in the village.

By now around 30 baby goats are mature enough to leave the mother goat and live with new families. Together with the Committee, Aline and Ingrid distributed the young goats to their new owners.

The CITW YES Club and the Rwabiharamba Primary and Secondary schools were also visited by Aline and Ingrid this month. The 40 students in the YES Club also received Club t-shirts, and had a fun time exchanging ideas. Among the YES Club members are the 16 students who received a CITW scholarship for the duration of their six years of secondary schooling.

In April the installation of a Wilderness and CITW water filtration system was completed at Rwabiharamba Primary and Secondary schools.

The installation was made possible by generous donations from Wilderness guests. The filtration system will ensure clean, safe and hygienic drinking water for all 1,200 students and 35 teachers at the school!
