We are looking for fundraising support to help us up our fundraising-game so that we can provide more children in Western Rwanda with an education!

What will you be doing?

Children of Rwanda is a small, volunteer-run organisation that is having a big impact on children in Western Rwanda. This year, with a budget of only £15,500, we enable 262 children to return to their local schools and provided 1,218 people with life-saving health insurance. However, there are many more children in the region who are in need of this help, we just lack the funds to reach them.

To reach more kids, we are trying to up our fundraising game here in the UK and we are looking for help in doing that. We are currently focusing our energy on submitting funding applications to foundations but we are open to any ideas and would encourage any volunteer to help us establish other streams of funding.

What are we looking for?

We are looking for a motivated fundraiser who is keen to contribute to a good cause and who can help take the organisation in new directions.

We are here to give as much support as we can!

What difference will you make?

For every £50 pounds we raise, we are able to send a child back to school and provide them and their entire family with basic health insurance. This is a key step in breaking the cycle of poverty, making sure kids can make the most of their universal right to an education and making sure that if they are sick they can see doctors and get medicine.

Helping Children of Rwanda improve our fundraising capacity will directly contribute to the number of kids we are able to register on the programme. So your contribution will tangibly result in more children being able to go to school.  

What's in it for the volunteer?

Children of Rwanda might be small, but there is enormous potential in the work we do and we are determined to keep growing and reaching more beneficiaries. As such, there are always opportunities for volunteers within the organisation, whether that is insight into other areas of work (project design, strategy, etc) or taking on more responsibility and ownership of the task you are working on.

We are also open to any suggestions from volunteers, so if you know what you want out of a volunteering experience, please feel free to tell us and we will see what we can do!
