This year is off to a great start at Grace Rwanda.

First of all, we’d like to thank all our supporters for making our “This Holiday, Give a Library” campaign a success.

We met our Indiegogo goal, and this year, that money will go to buy 500 more books for Rwandan students. Those of you who requested tax receipts, we’ll make sure to get those to you.

We’d also like to thank everyone who came out to support the Langley Sunrise Rotary Christmas Tree sale, with proceeds going to support some of Grace Rwanda’s projects.

And we’d like to share our appreciation with our other community supporters who made generous donations to our cause: Sechelt’s Bethel Baptist Church members, who raised $1,000 for our literacy programs, the Rotary Club of North Delta, which made a significant contribution to our Muhanga Youth Centre Library, the Rotary Club of Langley Sunrise, which approved a district matching grant of nearly $8,000 that will allow us to build another youth centre library, and students at Holy Cross Regional Secondary who raised $600 for Grace Rwanda through donations and craft sales.

We’d like to extend our deepest thanks to all of of these incredible donors for their support to date. We can’t do it without you. You are the heart and soul of what we do and we appreciate everything you do.

Stay tuned for some exciting news and events coming from Grace Rwanda this year, including an upcoming trip to Rwanda this spring to install more libraries!
