Global Capacity provides scholarships for school (Primary and Secondary/Vocational school) in Rwanda and health insurance for the entire household of these students.  We believe in a holistic approach to our scholarships, where most of the needs are met for our students while they are in school. That’s why we are offering more than just paying for the tuition.  Each child we accept into the program is guaranteed a one-year scholarship for school, with the hope of continuing the scholarship through the entirety of school.

  • School fees

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ABOUT SOME OF THESE ITEMS:

  • School fees: Provides the necessary funds for school fees.

  • School materials: Items include a backpack, notebooks, pens, math set, and other required learning tools

  • Health insurance: Often families cannot afford to buy health insurance and the children go without it.
  • Transportation: Provides public transportation between home and Secondary or Vocational School. Each student travels between home and boarding school many times throughout the school year. With funds for transportation, the child can travel home during the school breaks.
  • Boarding school kit: Some Secondary School students attend boarding school. For these students, we provide them a mattress, bed sheets, pillow, blanket, towel, mosquito net, trunk, and locks.
