Please help us in any way you can in this wonderful charitable endeavor.


February 2021 Update :

COVID-19 cases have recently risen in the Rwandan capital of Kigali. The city and schools in Kigali have gone on lockdown once again. The provinces outside of Kigali remain open and continue to follow safety protocols.

Our Station School students are very happy to remain in school. They continue to strive to do their very best. The students feel that by achieving good grades, they are making their sponsors proud. They do not want to let you down.


December 2020 Update :
The teachers are working diligently as they restart classes after stopping for eight months due to Covid-19. This requires much effort and coordination.

Remedial classes are being offered to help students after such a long time away from school. The headmistress (principal) reports that she sees good progress and improvement.

As of this report, there are no Covid-19 cases in the school. The teachers and students continue to adhere to preventive measures, though it is difficult for students.

This year, there will not be a Christmas break. Classes will continue until Easter holidays in April 2021.

Thanks to generous Sharing Family Sponsors, the large cooking pot makes lunch preparation more efficient and our lunch program continues to feed over 1,400 students each school day.

A message from the Station School Principal (Headmistress) :
“I, students, teachers and my family wish you a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year 2021.”


November 2020 Update :
The students are happy to be back at the Station School.
Unlike most of our students in the US, they are unable to learn remotely. Most do not have electricity, nor supplies
to complete school work.
The children were very excited to receive the supplies we provided.

A message from the Station School Principal (Headmistress):
“The words cannot express how we are thankful to the whole team of sponsors.
May Almighty God bless your every day’s activities. I take into consideration your kind work.
And I promise to be accountable to each activity concerning this program.”


October 28 2020 Update :  The Annual Spaghetti Dinner was a big success!
Thank you to all who participated.

We are very grateful for the sponsors that continue to support and welcome new
sponsors to the Sharing Family initiative.

The students at the Station School in Rwanda will never forget your kindness and
generosity. They believe that there are angels in Chicago.

School.
