Evergreen Beauty College raises $1000 for Muhumrize Catch-Up School (Kigali, Rwanda)
Evergreen Beauty College partnered with Donor Effect to help launch the organization of Donor Effect and their first cause.
Donor Effect raises money for nonprofit organizations dedicated to issues related to extreme global poverty. Their unique approach allows individuals to double their donations to double their impact, all while creating awareness and facilitating funding movements.
Evergreen Beauty College’s owners choose to support Rwanda Partners for the first project. Rwanda Partners is a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing opportunities for the poor and marginalized in Rwanda. Rwanda Partners was founded in 2004 to provide hope and healing after the devastating genocide. Rwanda Partners focuses on fighting poverty by providing jobs, education and reconciliation training to thousands across Rwanda. As Evergreen Beauty College’s leads in the education industry, Evergreen continues to give back and assist third world countries through support of their education. The Trieu Family (owners of Evergreen Beauty College) immigrated from Vietnam hold community service organizations like this dear to their heart.
About This Project
Rwanda Partners has joined forces with a local school meeting the needs of the most marginalized youth in Rwanda. This unique school is dedicated to meeting the needs of more than 200 kids who have never started or completed their primary school education. These kids live on the streets – without any one to care for them or look out for them and have never been given the opportunity to go to school.
The Muhumurize Catch-Up School takes kids where they are at, on the street, with little or no education and catches them up through primary school. This school follows curriculum developed by the government to catch them up through their primary school grades (1-6) in a matter of three years allowing them to catch up into the normal school system. In the past two years the school has experienced a 90% passing rate for their third-year students and continues to grow.
