Since the beginning of its operations in Rwanda, Yego Rwanda foundation has carried on the custom of hosting an annual Christmas party for its family which includes the youth beneficiaries and their families and well wishers.
This year, the party was hosted on the 27th of December at the Kigali Parents school grounds. It was attended by over 49 children and at least 12 parents and friends of the children.

Sitting Down to Dinner
Our fundraiser on May 28th was a big success. The afternoon started with a talent show put on by the children of St. Andrew’s United Church and the neighbouring community. Awesome talent, and thanks to Joan Yee for organizing it all. After the talent show we went downstairs for a dinner cooked by members of the YEGO Canada Board, presentations by Emmanuel Gatera and Kae Neufeld who had just recently returned from Rwanda, and music and dancing led by YEGO Board member Joy Mukarage. We raised over $5,000.00 for the work of YEGO Rwanda and the donations are still coming in. Thanks to all who made it such a memorable event!
