In 2008 Kids at Play completed their first project in Rwanda, where the Foundation supported an orphanage called Rusayo.
A playground was built and a monastery of 400 m2 that had collapsed was reconstructed. When we returned at this site to inspect the state of the constructed work, we were struck by the gratitude of the local people, who helped create a successful project. Hence, our motivation to start a new project got a new boost. The total costs of this project was €13.000, which we collected before and after the execution of the project.

HOW DID WE FUND THIS PROJECT?
In the past we have organised a charity run for every project we have worked on. Each time the charity run was a huge success and produced a lot of money for the cause. It’s our goal to keep on doing this for future projects.
