The primary mission of Rwanda Project USVI is to be an educational corporation that will raise funds to take Virgin Islands high school students to Rwanda to expose them to life in a country that has been devastated by genocide and disease, while allowing them to complete community service projects there.
Rwandan Educational Component
It is also a goal of the organization to further the cultural and educational exchange by bringing Rwandan students to the Virgin Islands.
Rwanda Project USVI will raise the funds to pay for the travel expenses and in-country projects while developing ongoing, meaningful projects in support of Rwandan genocide survivors and orphans.
As the project moves forward, it is expected to foster an ongoing relationship between the Rwandan people, organizations and government and the people, organizations and government of the U.S. Virgin Islands that will result in an exchange of ideas and projects that will raise the consciousness of all concerned.
