The Peace & Hope School in Kigali, Rwanda
Please sponsor us! #PurbeckRuntoRwanda #MakeUpTheMiles
The Charity Prefects are raising money for The Peace & Hope School in Kigali, Rwanda by encouraging all pupils and staff to take part in a sponsored run or walk before a non-uniform day on Friday 25th June 2021. The aim is to run the equivalent distance of around 6,000 miles from The Purbeck School to Kigali. Students can pick up a sponsorship form from their tutor and join the closed Strava Club https://www.strava.com/clubs/936783, or search for #PurbeckRunToRwanda, to log their miles (only if they want to). You can also donate on our Just Giving page – scan the QR code or click this link:
OUR COMMITMENT TO RWANDA
The majority of people in
Rwanda are very poor. Families live in mud huts and have to collect water in cans – this is often the job of children. Too many children do not have the chance to go to school and this means their life chances are very limited. The Purbeck School is committed to helping children gain an education and give them the very best life chances. The Excel School, Rwamagana – for years we have sponsored children at this school and visited and taught them, too.
THE PEACE AND HOPE SCHOOL, KIGALI, RWANDA
The Purbeck School has also visited the Peace and Hope Initiative Organization twice over the last five years. It is a remarkable place. Peace and Hope envisions a Rwanda in which all children are able to go to school without fear of hunger or sickness, where every poor child has an education and has a hope of brighter future.
Previous non-uniform days have helped to decorate and finish classrooms for the children here. We have also donated books, resources and a projector to the school.
With your help, we hope to continue this help for the children and our friends in Rwanda. Thank you.
