KAGEYO PRIMARY SCHOOL
Thank you for your interest in Kageyo Primary School!
Kageyo is a resettlement village about three hours east of Kigali. Rwandan refugees living in Tanzania resettled in Kageyo when they were sent back to Rwanda. Now, several thousand people live in small homes the Rwandan government built for them. Kageyo is in an arid part of Rwanda, where it is difficult to grow crops. Because most children live in extreme poverty, lunch is served at school each day. There are few jobs in Kageyo, so most parents are unemployed.
Kageyo Primary School is a formerly government-run school, which the Rwandan government asked Africa New Life to take over. Classes began in September 2012. The 400+ students of Kageyo Primary School are funded through a special grant, but as of January, every student needs to be sponsored.
Below are the faces of some children awaiting sponsorship in Kageyo. If you are able to sponsor a child, please click the link below. (Or click here to learn about becoming a Facebook advocate.)
