As we look back on 2015, we are filled with gratitude for the many ways we have seen God at work, and for the change that is taking place at an individual and systemic level in Rwanda through quality values-based education. As you will read in our Annual Report below, we have the privilege of working in the 49 schools of Rwanda’s Gasabo District, as well 22 schools in the west of Rwanda, where we equip school leaders, teachers, parents, and community leaders to play their part in developing vibrant learning communities where 90,000+ students can thrive and fulfill their God-given potential.
