PROFILE: BUgesera

Bugesera is a dry and arid district located about one hour south of Kigali. During the 1994 genocide in Rwanda, Bugesera lost more than half its population. Today, the people of Bugesera live in extreme poverty and most children either do not attend school or attend irregularly.

AFRICA NEW LIFE IN BUGESERA

In 2011, the government of Rwanda asked Africa New Life to manage a school built by UNICEF (pictured above), which had never opened. In January 2012, Africa New Life opened the school with more than 300 sponsored students. Today, more than 400 children attend school in Bugesera. Our teachers in Bugesera have been filmed for national television in Rwanda, as an example of best methods and practices in teaching.

GROWING FAITH IN BUGESERA

In the Fall of 2015 the New Life Bible Church in Bugesera held its first service indoors in a newly constructed building thanks to generous donors who care deeply about the growing faith of our brothers and sisters in Rwanda.
