the everyday miracle
over 500 children
paid local staff
the school supports a staff of over 60 rwandans (teachers, night guards, cooks, cleaners, gardener, administrative staff, lawyer, accountant, and sewers)
nursery to primary
we currently teach children in grades nursery 1 (pre k-1) through primary 6 (6th grade)
In Rwanda, it’s very common for kids not to eat lunch at school. This partially government enforced in order that children with less capacity will not feel left out when other children eat in front of them. But since all the kids that attend VCS are part of our program, we can provide meals for everyone. The sad reality is that this might be the only meal the kids get in a day, so we find this an incredible opportunity to be a discernible blessing to them.
