Inshuti-UK - school project

School projectThe schools in Ruhengeriall lack resources in every area. Privately-run schools have classrooms and basic facilities but very few books and classroom materials. The state run primary schools (which constitute the sole source of education for the majority of the population) cater for up to 2,500 local children each, and lack electricity, seating for pupils, teaching materials and in some cases even classrooms.

Inshuti-UK are involved in setting up friendship programmes between Rwandan schools and their UK counterparts

Communications between the schools will allow the two cultures to gain a wider understanding of each-other, and it is hoped that the UK schools will be able to provide material assistance through books, clothes and fund-raising. In addition, Inshuti-UK is working with a local partner organisation to set up a vocational and cultural centre in Ruhengeri, which will provide training in languages and IT skills as well as providing a base for local musicians and dancers.

Other projects include:

friendship programme between Rwandan and UK Schools Assistance to local HIV/AIDS projectsAssistance to local HIV/AIDS projects such as the 'Association des Jeunes Scolarisé contre le SIDA' - run by a young team committed to educating their peers in the principles of safe-sex and to confronting the local taboo against condom use.


DrumsInshuti-UK are working to create a channel for these African drums to be brought to the UK for resale, with all profits going back to Rwanda to help the community.

Inshuti-UK were instrumental in bring Ballet Inganzo to the UK in July 2002 for a month long series of performances and education workshops.

School project

Whilst in the UK Ballet Inganzo spent a day in Studio 1 of world famous ''Air Studios'. The session was made possible by the staff and engineers at Air recording the music of Inganzo without charge, and the result was twelve tracks of music, including the drum choirs, traditional tribal war crys and a number of songs.
