Frequently Asked Questions

If you have any questions about Foundation Rwanda or our Donation process, please don’t hesitate to contact us at

How does It work?
Foundation Rwanda has donated office space from Getty Images in the US and works with local NGOs and social workers in Rwanda to implement our programs and maximize efficiency.

Where will my money go?
Your donation will go directly towards sponsoring the education of children born of rape during the Rwandan genocide and towards trauma counseling and income generating programs for their mothers.

What does It take to send a child to secondary school?
A $150 donation will sponsor a child to go to school for one fiscal year and $350 will provide school fees, scholastic materials, uniforms, shoes, and transportation. Our goal is that each child we sponsor has the opportunity to attend school through graduation. The children will be visited periodically by Foundation Rwanda staff or social workers to evaluate their progress.

Foundation Rwanda seeks to sponsor each child through graduation. With an annual donation of $350 you can sponsor one child's school fees, books transportation and uniform all the way through his or her graduation. If you'd like to become an annual donor, please check the annual donor box on the donation page.
