Each year all districts in Rwanda organize a special event commonly referred to as “Open Day” for up to 70 partners of the district to exhibit their activities, products and services. As usual, the 2016 “Open Day” of the district of Gasabo is being held at the Amahoro National Stadium grounds in Kigali. For 3 days, from June 28 to June 30, the event will present an opportunity for the Gasabo community to learn more about the core business of the different Gasabo district’s development partners active in the district. Like in all previous Gasabo district “Open Day” events, Wellspring Foundation, as a key development partner in education, was also privileged and honored to participate in the event. This was an opportunity to show to the Community of Gasabo, the nature of our work in the different public schools of Gasabo and to explain why we do what we do: to be a catalyst for transforming education for hundreds of thousands of African children and fostering vibrant communities that address poverty in all its forms.

“We commend the district of Gasabo for giving such an opportunity to all its partners to share what they do with the Community but also to build the synergy between different stakeholders. There are great initiatives and innovative solutions developed by many actors in the districts but that remain untold. So this event allows us to openly say to the community of Gasabo : ‘We do all this for you’” , Vedate Byombi (Wellspring’s Community Involvement and District Liaison Programme Manager)
