Root Foundation Rwanda decides autonomously how it uses your donations. This gives the local organization the freedom it needs to do a good job. At least 700€ per month is used to cover running costs including rent, electricity, materials, travel expenses for volunteers and the website.

Why do we not offer named sponsorships?

We have made a conscious decision not to allow private sponsorships for individual children and youth. Every child is utterly equal and therefore worth being supported. The decision of a named private sponsorship is often made on an emotional level. Who receives educational support can only be decided locally depending on demand, motivation, prospect of success etc. We believe that it is worth supporting the work of Root Foundation Rwanda in its entirety and hope you trust this decision. We are happy if you want to get in touch with us.
