We are raising money for Mabawa, a non-profit in Rwanda that helps support the rural community of Nyaymyumba through sustainable programs in education, health, micro-credit financing, agriculture, clean water, and more.
Thank you so much to everyone who has supported so far! We have officially made it half way to our goal! Keep spreading the word! Every little donation makes a huge difference!
We are students from the Virginia Tech Linking Lives study abroad program, which sends students to Nyamyumba, Rwanda to engage in service learning projects with Mabawa each Fall. We are very passionate about what this organization is doing for their community! Your contribution will help support Mabawa's projects to empower the community and further personal goals of the community members through educational scholarships and micro-credit financing for small businesses.
"Mabawa has truly had a lasting positive impact on my life. Walking through the small town of Nyamyumba, a town Mabawa supports, it is obvious how big of an impact this organization has had, not only on the infrastructure of the town but on day to day life for its citizens. The citizens aren't just beneficiaries of Mabawa, they are now part of the Mabawa family, and they are treated as such. I am so excited to have the opportunity to help an organization that changes and betters lives daily." -Patrick Franz (2016 Linking Lives Student and Club Executive Committee Member)
We appreciate any amount you are able to contribute. Thank you for your support. Happy Holidays!
