Our Goals
FRE’s INITIAL goal is to build and develop St. Antoine Secondary School in the Diocese of Byumba and District of Nyagatare, Rwanda. Our faith-based boarding school provides students with a rigorous academic program each year.
WE HAVE REACHED PART OF OUR GOAL ALREADY.
To date, our completed projects include a well, one classroom building, two dormitories, an outdoor kitchen, a library with 22,000 volumes, a science lab, a computer lab, lavatories and a thriving garden.
We have accomplished all of this through
generous givers who believe
that education is the key to overcoming poverty and helping young Rwandans overcome the impact of the genocide. We are humbled by your support of our mission.
What’s Next?
THERE IS STILL SO MUCH TO DO!
In addition to completing our initial goal, our future efforts involve building a medical clinic on campus. Since St. Antoine’s is a boarding school, we must care for infirmed students and provide routine medical care for the student body. Our ultimate plan is that the clinic will also serve as a vital medical center for the surrounding village.
In addition to the med clinic, our future endeavors include walkways throughout campus, a chapel, a sponsorship program and athletic fields and equipment.
Our campus design, our robust academic program and our continued investment establishes St. Antoine’s as one of the premier schools in Rwanda. This year, despite Covid shutdowns and restrictions, we anticipate an enrollment of 150 students in 7/8th grade.
With continued support, we will bring a blue-ribbon quality education to St. Antoine’s Secondary School in Nyagatare, Rwanda.
