All I Want for Christmas is a New Latrine

AND WHY NOT? If you had to share a single open pit toilet with 175 other kids you would too! There are 1,400 students at the school in Rwinkwavu, Rwanda. They share 8 latrines.

Community leaders in Rwinkwavu say that giving children access to basic sanitation is their greatest need. To meet this need Grace Rwanda has proposed a 16-hole latrine which will triple the number of toilets currently available. A hole for the latrine has already been prepared by the community.

Miracle in Rwanda

Leslie Lewis Sword brilliantly transforms herself into a host of characters to tell the incredible story of Rwandan Genocide Survivor, Immaculée Ilibagiza, a real-life messenger of hope.

Grace Rwanda supports the play, Miracle in Rwanda, based on the book “Left to Tell” by Immaculée Ilibagiza. It tells the story of how she survived during the Rwanda genocide in 1994. The story also represents what other Rwandan survivors had to live through, including Elizabeth and Marie Louise, Grace Rwanda Society’s co-founders.
