REAP views education broadly and, combined with community building, as a powerful vehicle for strengthening the lives of all community members.
Through a variety of free community programs REAP aims to support the rural population of Musha, Rwamagana in their efforts toward economic independence and healthy social interdependence. Our Community Learning Center and Library hosts community events such as workshops, parent cohorts, movie nights and educational programming in areas of leadership, parenting, teacher training, food access, gender equality, and entrepreneurship. We partner with local schools in their sponsorship and scholarships efforts to support the futures of Rwanda’s brightest and most precious resource. REAP staff are neighbors to students and their families, and work alongside community members at large, to improve lives, generate opportunity, and promote community stability and resilience.
