Yambi Rwanda

On Sep 10, 2017 we attended a  Yambi  Rwanda event.  YAMBI is the Kinyarwanda word for “Embrace."  The event was very fun. They taught us about their programs.  One program is the Fairchild Deaf School, where they help deaf students in Rwanda.  They also have an "egg a day" program where they  give eggs for protein. They also have an art program called the Inema Arts Center. 

 

The event also had a silent auction to raise money for Rwanda. It was fun to bid.  We won a stuffed elephant that someone in Rwanda made, a necklace, a beaded basket and a bag.

 

Here is more information from the website www.yambirwanda.org

 

Yambi Rwanda is a non-profit (501)(c)(3) dedicated to transcending genocide and overcoming poverty in Rwanda through the creation of opportunity and the improvement of the lives of Rwandans, one-by-one, with a focus on education, faith, the imparting of life skills, the celebration of Rwandan arts and culture, and sustained provision of the essentials of life, such as clean water, adequate nutrition,

and improved health care.

 

The Inema Arts Center is located in the heart of a residential area of Kigali, the capital of Rwanda.  Founded in 2012 by brothers and self-taught painters Emmanuel Nkuranga and Innocent Nkurunziza, Inema Arts Center spurs creativity for personal, social, and economic growth.
