Time has flown and Ubaka U Rwanda is turning 5!
Five years since a few of us: Becky, Evode, Lucy and Marita embarked on the exciting journey of registering Ubaka U Rwanda as a Charity in the UK to enrich and empower the lives of street children in Rwanda.
Since then we have gone from strength to strength. What started as a local project by Evode has grown into cross country initiative with supporters from the UK and the USA (thanks to the great support from Sully who works half a year as a firefighter in the USA and helps us in Rwanda for the rest).
Today we now house more than 30 boys, provide them with education and most importantly a home. The boys exam results speak for themselves and we have now have collected enough funding to buy land and build our own house for the boys. This will give us more stability as the letting market in Rwanda is volatile which is part due to the fluctuating exchange rate.
To celebrate this anniversary Becky and Evode are coming the London with their child Keza. We would like to invite you to join us at The Old Explorer Pub in Central London on the 26th of October 2013 from 3 pm onwards to meet the trustees, have a chat and celebrate.
Date: 26th of October
Time: from 3pm to 11pm (drop in whenever you feel like it)
Location: The Old Explorer, 23 Great Castle Street, W1G 0JA London, United Kingdom (click here for the map)
We look forward to seeing you soon.
Your Ubaka U Rwanda Team
