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.

This week, a new term has started at Kingdom Secondary and Vocational School in Kigali. The students and staff have all returned from their Easter break ready to work hard and take full advantage of ten new laptops which, due to an extremely generous donation, Equip has been able to provide for the IT department.

In addition we have heard today the good news that the school has received its initial registration which is the first step towards achieving the Workforce Development Agency accreditation. Well done to our Principal James Mitari and the staff team at KSV for making this happen!

The Equip team is currently planning another visit very soon to be able to encourage and support them. Please pray for the students they continue with their courses and for the staff as as they seek to develop each young person to reach their full potential.

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!

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.
