Grace News Cover

We’re here! Grace Rwanda’s co-founder Elizabeth Johnson and President Paul Johnson arrived in Rwanda earlier this year to begin to set up our in-country headquarters for our growing charity.

It’s an exciting time for the organization. After some challenges, Grace Rwanda has secured our shipping container full of books and library supplies and we’re gearing up to open our next youth centre library in Kimisagara at the end of March.

Grace Rwanda is also setting up a brand new office near the capital, on the site of what will hopefully become the home of sister organization the social enterprise Ineza Foundation in future. Already, the team has been liaising with local governments, community organizations and Canadian government representatives on the ground, strengthening Grace Rwanda’s network and sharing our vision of literacy for Rwanda.

Have a read of our latest newsletter, Grace News, for all the latest from the field.

Once again, we’d like to thank all of our Canadian and international volunteers and supporters for helping us to achieve this next step for our organization. We’re proud of how far we’ve come and can’t wait to see all we can accomplish together in future.

It’s been an exciting summer at Grace Rwanda as we prepare to move and launch our head office operations in Rwanda’s capital city of Kigali this fall.

As part of our preparation, we’ve been looking back at our work and looking ahead to our future. We have big plans for the organization’s growth and the extension of our mission abroad to bring a true culture of reading and literacy to as many Rwandan youth as we can reach.

If you’d like to read more about our path and our upcoming plans, have a read of our new 2015 Grace Rwanda Society Annual Report.

Inside, you’ll find updates on all our projects, financial benchmarks and future goals.

Also, stay tuned for news of our next public event. We’re planning a Rwandan Dinner and Craft Fair in August.
