Quality education as the path to a promising future
REAP combines education with community-based capacity building that empowers people to overcome post-genocide and post-colonialism conditions.
REAP strives to address obstacles impeding Rwandan families’ ability to overcome socio-economic burdens that not only limit children’s educational opportunities, but also lead to a debilitating cycle of poverty that keeps generations of Rwandans disenfranchised and educationally disempowered, and thus unable to enhance their well-being.
REAP views education broadly and as a powerful vehicle for strengthening the lives of all community members. Through a variety of leadership, parenting, teacher training, food access (community farm and school meals), girls' leadership and empowerment, entrepreneurial, and sponsorship and scholarships efforts, REAP partners with young people and their families, and others in the community to improve lives, generate opportunity, and promote grassroots community stability and resilience.
