Future Education Fund - Educating our Children


"For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord; plans to prosper you and not to harm you; plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11

We at Urukundo through Hope Made Real are trying to set up a fund to help our children who have finished Secondary School and qualify to go on to higher education.

We are seeking Christian families willing to commit to a multi-year annual pledge to support our students’ future education.  A fund raiser is also an option. Your church, a Sunday school class, friends and families could participate. With 23 kids in Secondary school we need help. 

The first to graduate in 2013 was Tresor who wants to study engineering. His grades have qualified him to apply for the MASTERCARD SCHOLARSHIP AWARD.  At present he is going to Bridge 2 Rwanda (www.bridge2rwanda.org) to study for his Toefl and SAT tests. The Teofl program costs $275 USD and the SAT help program is $375. I am hoping with the extra teaching he will be given one of the awards. If so he would then come to the US for study. I will need $3000-$12,000 in a fund for him.

Our future ~ one graduated in 2013, five in 2014, three in 2015, two in 2016, three in 2017, five in 2018 and four in 2019. After that our younger children will be coming along.

If you are interested in holding an event contact Carol Falke  falkes@verizon.net / Phone:  814-321-1076. She lives in State College, PA, is a board member for HMR and is Director for Fundraising. Carol is willing to come to your church to share updates about the Urukundo Home and Learning Center focusing on the education program. 

I know you love THE KIDS AT URUKUNDO  These vulnerable kids have a future because of your care. Please ask yourself WHAT CAN I DO? First, pray for and hold these children in your heart. Then help us plan for their futures.
