Friends of Tubeho in Rwanda: Supporting Students in the Aftermath of Genocide
Friends of Tubeho is a non-profit organization committed to providing access to education to orphans of the Rwandan genocide and their descendants. These students, who live in reconstituted families in a village outside of Rwanda’s capital Kigali, chose for their association the name “Tubeho” — “Let’s live” in Kinyarwanda. This is precisely what Friends of Tubeho does: by providing university scholarships and related financial support, it supports the students in building a better life for themselves and their families.
Since its foundation in 2007, Friends of Tubeho has funded university education for 30 scholars. These young adults have gone on to work in the fields of accounting, human resources, business, entrepreneurship, and social services.
Friends of Tubeho is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, and 100% of donations contribute to scholarships for the students.
