Caroline Joan Peixoto, City Arts, photographed classical ballet students at rehearsal in Rwanda’s only classical ballet school. This school has given the Kigali community incredible hope as the first post-genocide ballet school.
20 years after the genocide in Rwanda,
reconciliation still happens one encounter at a time.

Dear friends of YEGO Rwanda,
A big THANK YOU for helping us raise a net total of $7, 822.29 at
the second annual Roses for Rwanda beneﬁt concert on May 25th!
You may be interested to know that the evening was run entirely
by volunteers so, apart from three honorariums offered to the
artists who performed, your donations will go directly to help
As part of our commitment to transparency, click here to see how the money raised will support the work of YEGO Rwanda. Our fundraising efforts covered just under a third of YEGO’s estimated annual budget.
Thank you again for helping to build a truly loving and hopeful
generation of Rwandans.
