THE JONATHAN FOUNDATION
Because Education Changes Lives
Who We Are
Our mission is to provide a stable learning environment where students can fulfill their academic potential, while ensuring that each child has unlimited access to clean drinking water throughout the school day and a nutritious daily lunch.
Rwanda is one of the poorest countries in the world with $797 GDP per Capita in 2020.
Rwanda suffered a major genocide against Tutsi in 1994. The country managed to heal but still needs help.
Rwanda is a safe country with good people. The police and government are not corrupted.
The local authorities and people of Rwanda accept, support and appreciate foreign initiatives.
Re-build School Infrastructure
The Jonathan Foundation has already started an ambitious renovation and extension project of the Groupe Scolaire Dihiro school in Bugesera, a district of Eastern province Rwanda.
Understanding that a successful school needs the fundamentals in place for children to thrive, the Foundation has installed broadband, built a kitchen and two dining rooms, introduced fresh running water and now gives each child in attendance a wholesome lunch, five days a week.
With fully installed electricity, pupils are able to undertake further studies at the end of the school day and do their homework in a safe, well lit and comfortable environment conducive to learning.
Teacher? Come and volunteer!
In 2021, the Foundation will focus on developing the teaching skills required to deliver the national curriculum of Rwanda to the highest standards possible, increasing the number of students who pass their annual exams and continue to the next stage of their education.
The students of the Groupe Scolaire Dihiro school are bright, committed and eager to learn. The Foundation is inviting teachers and educational professionals from all over the world to volunteer their experience and enthusiasm on behalf of our students and our team of teachers.
We’ll only get there with the support of our worldwide community. Join us on our journey.
And help us save and improve lives!
