About

In 1994 Rwanda experienced a terrible genocide leaving the country broken and depressed. One of the mass murder sites of the genocide was the L’Ecole Primaire de Butare (Elementary School of Butare). In 2007 a student, now an adult, who had attended that school Beata Umugwangwali sought the help of freinds to restore the classrooms. This became Be The Change Volunteers project #001. Since that time much has changed on this campus and hope thrives in this school. To learn more about participating on a project in Rwanda contact us at info@BTCV.us
