  • Mission statement

    Msaada assists the people of Rwanda to restore their dignity and their livelihoods that were destroyed during the horrific genocide in 1994 by establishing self-help income-generating projects.
    Msaada funds agricultural projects that assist widows and orphans of the genocide to become self sufficient.
    Msaada supports profit-making projects in Rwanda, run by the Rwandans themselves, that fund a range of physical and psychological care and legal advice to widows and orphans still suffering from injustice and trauma after the dreadful events of 1994, and, primary, secondary, vocational and university education for children who were orphaned by the genocide and who have no means of support.
    Msaada involves the people themselves in solving their own problems and is guided by their capacity, skills, experience and vision.
    Msaada enables families to make their own decisions on rebuilding their lives and in their fight for justice and against crushing poverty.
    Through Msaada’s schools exchange programme we encourage understanding and co-operation between the youth of the UK and Rwanda, as well as raising awareness among communities in the UK of the evils of genocide and how they can assist those who have suffered it to overcome the dreadful consequences.
