Friends of Butare is a non-profit organization that brings HOPE to children who suffer from the 1994 Rwandan genocide. Over 800,000 people were murdered in 100 days while the world stood by and watched. Today there are thousands of homeless orphaned children who live in poverty and need inspiration. Friends of Butare is actively doing something about this, and you can too! The country of Rwanda does not have the means and can not afford to fix all the schools that were destroyed during the war. Friends of Butare brings SMILES back to children through education. Friends of Butare is repairing the only public school in the village of Butare so the children in the village can have a safe learning environment where they can thrive. Help the children of Rwanda. Spread the word. Join the cause. All children deserve the right to an education and a bright future.
