Benebikira Sisters

The Benebikira Sisters are a Roman Catholic diocesan community living and working in many countries in Africa, including Rwanda.  The Benebikira Sisters administer schools in Rwanda, including fourteen boarding schools at the Secondary level, six Primary schools, and two Vocational schools.  The sisters have built four of these schools on their own.

One of the many ways APICS has facilitated support to the Benebikira Sisters is through Sister Lillian Gaudet, a Sister of St. Martha at Bethany in Antigonish, Nova Scotia and her music students.   The students perform concerts to raise money to support students at the Immaculate Conception School in Save, Rwanda.
