    Is there a way to support the specific piece of this Foundation that targets teaching ballet to children?

      Thanks for your note. Our Rwanda director Emmanuel Gatera will be arriving in Canada this weekend. I’ll pass your inquiry on to him, and have hi, respond. Thanks again.

    • Hi CEHilliard, I am sorry for getting in touch late. Thanks a lot for your idea of exploring to support teaching ballet to our children. It is a good idea and possible . But the challenge is to have somebody who is qualified to help us teach that. But it is worthy pursuing.
      Best wishes

      Emmanuel Gatera
      Executive Director.
