Rwanda is a forward-looking country on the brink of something special. 98% of children attend primary school, the highest rate in Africa, and growing employment means students can be ambitious about life after education.
In rural schools like Kibungo, however, many children are being held back by a lack of access to clean water.
Dorari is one of those children. At ten years old he's already decided to become a language teacher when he finishes school. But, he says, "I always get thirsty at school. I don’t drink the water here because it’s not clean."
Schoolchildren can't focus on their classes when they're thirsty – but the only alternative is to drink dirty water and risk becoming sick. This shouldn't be normal life for boys like Dorari.
The good news is: you can change this.
This summer, you can reach 38 schools across Rwanda (including Dorari's) with the taps, tanks and pipes that will deliver clean water. You will give students a better chance to stay healthy, keep clean and focus on what really counts.
Will you donate today and give Rwanda's next generation the gift of clean water?
