A Partnership in Caring Volunteers Visit Saint Bernadette School

We received this update from A Partnership in Caring (APIC) volunteer Maria van Vonderen. Today Maria and fellow APIC volunteer Carolyn Rideout visited SAVE, one of the first Catholic missions in Rwanda. It is also home to the Mother House of the Benebikira Sisters. It is just few kilometres north of Butare in southern Rwanda:

Visited the Saint Bernadette School in SAVE.

It is the oldest school in the country with over 800 students.

Met with 11 students who receive funding to attend school.

They were very engaging and curious about life in Canada.

A Partnership in Caring collaborates with Wishing Well Society to Install New Cisterns in Rwanda

A Partnership in Caring, working with the Wishing Well Society installed 12 new cisterns in

Three Cisterns being delivered

Rwanda earlier this year. The total cost of the project is 13.3 million Rwandan Francs or about $18,000 Canadian. The project is the result of many generous donors. Our partners in Rwanda, the Benebikira Sisters say the installation of the water collection tanks has had a much greater impact than originally expected because of the Corona virus.

The tanks have been placed in several locations in southern Rwanda, including the Benebikira Sisters’ Save Convent, which covers not only the needs of the Sisters, but the health centre, the local community, and a student dormitory. The tanks provide water for increased hand washing, cleaning of the dorms, and maintenance of its cow herd. It has also reduced its water bill with the city as they only water it uses from the municipality is for cooking and drinking.
In total, A Partnership in Caring, in partnership with the Wishing Well Society has installed 48 cisterns in Rwanda over the past number of years.
