SACCA’s principal support comes from
the organisations listed below, but we are most grateful to the many
individual supporters who have seen our work and been moved to give
donate money and time to assist us.WJR
World Jewish Relief are a UK based charity providing financial assistance to many projects worldwide. They have been supporting SACCA since 2005. The WJR grant in the past has funded running costs, educational programmes, income generation projects, social work and reintegration. Since 2012 WJR assistance allowed us further to focus on reintegration and prevention activities. WJR provides approximately 45% of SACCA’s operating budget and without their assistance SACCA would not be able to provide anything close to the current services to the children.
Streets Ahead Rwanda is a UK-based charity which raises money for SACCA. It was formed by Mark and Duncan with the aim of being able to help SACCA to carry out its programmes. Many of our British volunteers join Streets Ahead Rwanda upon return to the UK.
MIGEPROF is the Government ministry responsible for all children in Rwanda, including street children. MIGEPROF passes its funds through the National Commission for the Children (NCC) to assist us in our programmes.
ORYAR is a group of Canadian young professionals concerned about youth at risk in Rwanda. They like to focus on small-scale projects to make a difference. They were founded in March 2011 and have been assisting us since then, specifically with the child sponsorship programme.
Dutch Support SACCA Rwanda
In 2008, Ida Abels came to SACCA where she helped the girls by teaching them handicrafts. Upon return home to the Netherlands, she set about raising money, which SACCA used to buy a car. She also set up Dutch Support SACCA Rwanda, who have been assisting us since then in purchasing specific items such as water tanks and wardrobes for the children, as well as supporting the knitting programme.
The individual contributors to SACCA are too many to mention specifically, but they include the students of Chico High School in California who as well as participating in a pen-pal scheme with SACCA children have raised money for construction in the Kaborondo boy’s centre. We deeply appreciate all supporters, great and small, individuals and groups!
