Rwanda Fellows is 100% volunteer run. This means 0% overheads. We fund education for poor students with potential for positive civic engagement. The initiative has been founded by alumni of the London School of Economics. However, we have volunteers and well wishers from all quarters of the globe and many other universities.
Primary school drop out rate is 64.4%. Only 7.7% of the population over 25 has at least some secondary education. University education is extremely low. We believe education gives a young person the tools to improve his life and the lives of others.
