„Everytime you smile at someone, it is an action of love, a gift to that person, a beautiful thing.”
Friends of Handicap in Rwanda is an association that runs a school for deaf-mute children in Gatunda. Currently the school takes care of 130 pupils who have arrived here from all over the country. Children live there entire school year. The organization opens them a possibility to attend the classes. The older children learn about particular professions.
A situation of the handicap children in Rwanda quite often is really difficult. A physical indisposition of children brings shame on their parents. Frequently happens that the handicap child is brought by an aunt or uncle to school without paying a school fee. On the other hand, many, deaf-mute children come from very poor families and parents can’t afford for the fee. Less food, failure in adapting the school to the needs of children with disabilities, overused clothes are the basic consequences of the situation.
The association Friends of Handicap in Rwanda is forced to search for sponsors.
Schelter for one person at school run by Friends of Handicap in Rwanda costs 105 Polish Zlotych (24 EUR). This amount covers only the basic expenditure for alimentation, accommodation, clothes and education for a period of one month.
