As part of the initiative “Schools for Africa”, UNICEF helps to build child-friendly model schools in Rwanda. In this way, thousands of children finally get the chance to learn.
In Rwanda, 400,000 children still do not go to school; especially orphans and girls are disadvantaged. You can help UNICEF to make sure that every child gets a place in school.
You donate paticularly dedicated to the programme in Rwanda, which is part of the successful "Schools for Africa" campaign. With programmes in 13 countries, UNICEF ensures that all children go to school and complete it successfully. Basic education gives a child the chance for a better life.
