We-Actx for Education
WE-Actx for Education was founded in 2006 as a sub-program of WE-ACTx (an HIV/AIDS treatment organization). Our mission is to break the cycle of poverty by securing resources to educate children in Rwanda through secondary school. WE-ACT for Education provides funding for children from poor communities to go to school: we provide school fees and daily necessities without which education would be nearly impossible; things like school uniforms, notebooks, sanitary pads for teenage girls and in some cases, even breakfast. All of the communities we work with have been significantly affected by HIV and AIDS. Financial support for the program comes from individual and community donors in the United States. By pairing communities and individuals with communities of students in Rwanda we aim to create a sustainable way to get and keep children in school. With access to education comes the opportunity to escape poverty, not just for individuals but for whole communities. To learn more about us or get involved please visit www.weactforeducation.org.
