Rwanda’s Government is aiming for 70 per cent of Rwandans in rural areas to be living in newly built homes by the year 2020. This housing will replace the horrendous shacks these people are currently living in. Building model villages will help in efforts to use the country’s scarce land resources more efficiently and for the local authorities to bring aid more easily to those in greatest need. These homes are for those people who have absolutely nothing and where the children are some of the most vulnerable in Rwanda.
We are working in one of these model villages. Bihembe, with and through the school, to provide the infants aged 2-6 years with one meal of SORGUM porridge with sugar and bread each morning. SORGUM is approved by the WHO as a fully nutritional meal. We began this project in January 2019 with 90 infants. This year 140 infants are registered at the school.
