It’s always good to stop and reflect on progress and what a long way Equip has come! From the laying of the foundation stone of the new school building by the Hon. James Musoni back in 2011, the current Minister of Infrastructure in Rwanda (then Minister of Local Government), to watching young men literally build their futures as they practise their construction skills on the same spot today in 2017. And all thanks to the generosity of Equip supporters and our partnership with Restore Rwanda Ministries. Thank you! ... See MoreSee Less

Stuck for something to do this half term? Why not hunt out those old foreign coins from previous holidays and donate to our #CoinsforKigali initiative. The King’s School in Fair Oak has already raised an impressive £500+ from pre Euro currency and unwanted loose change in addition to £140.63 from a non uniform day. Well done The King’s School and thank you!

You can donate at the main reception at the school in Fair Oak or email office@equipuk.org to find a more convenient collection point.

As educators it’s always exciting to see the progression of learning and we are so encouraged with these photos taken a few days ago at Kingdom Secondary and Vocational School in Kigali. Our students are making great strides in their studies all thanks to the generosity of Equip supporters. Our numbers are up too with more young people keen to join the courses that we offer. Thank you for helping us make a difference! ... See MoreSee Less

High quality, handcrafted Rwandan products now available on Etsy.

Equip is delighted to introduce WidowsAndOrphansCo, a new British company selling products from a favourite place of ours, the Amahoro Ava Hejuru Cooperative. Amahoro is an all female cooperative in Kigali and many of the Christian ladies who work there were tragically widowed or orphaned in the 1994 genocide.

These remarkable women came together in 2004 and have been making an ever growing range of beautiful, vivid textile products since then. They created Amahoro Ava Hejuru Cooperative and this venture has allowed them to rebuild their lives, provide for their families and establish a successful enterprise. Our own craft teacher at Kingdom Secondary and Vocational School, herself a genocide survivor, was trained by the Amahoro team.

The women currently sell their products in local markets and from their workshop, which we love and have often visited. This exciting partnership with WidowAndOrphansCo allows their fantastic work to be sold to a much wider audience than they can achieve themselves. Equip’s mission is to promote opportunity and excellence - WidowsAndOrphansCo is doing exactly that!

Do have a browse and make a purchase. Thank you.

Your donations are transforming the lives of young people in Rwanda

We keep our administrative costs to a minimum by giving our time voluntarily. We also carry out routine monitoring visits at our own expense.

Equip has now been working in Rwanda for over ten years. Our main project, the Kingdom Secondary and Vocational School in the Mageregere area of Kigali, has trained over 100 students. We are thankful for our growing team of supporters who turn these young people’s dreams into reality.

Keeping Equip supporters in touch with our progress is a high priority. You can find important information on this website and on our Facebook page, ‘equipuk’. However, to become part of the Equip vision – please sign up to our mailing list. We’d love to have you on board!

How we allocate funding


I pray that God will bless all the children in these schools and prosper all those who give to us by His mercy

Mama Eric


I am grateful for my place in the primary school and I am hoping, one day, to be president.

Rebecca


I am grateful for the land that has been provided. It provides food for our families and a school for our children. There is hope for our future.

Mussa


Thank you Equip. We have the chance to go to school and develop our education. We want to speak English and use the computer.

Daniel


I am an English teacher and I am grateful to be able to teach at the secondary school. Please ask if there is anyone else who can help us with this vision. They would be most welcome in Rwanda.
