Education and community building toward

a promising future

REAP combines education with community-based capacity building to empower people to overcome post-genocide and post-colonialism circumstances.

Since 2009, Rwanda Education Assistance Project, Inc. (REAP), a U.S.- based nonprofit  — that is fully operated by Rwandan professionals on the ground in Rwanda — has been working with rural public schools, the community, and the local government in Musha Sector of the Rwamagana District in Rwanda. Its primary purpose is to establish a unique educational model that enriches learning and bridges the gap between school and community.

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.
