The School List :

Kagina

Crimson Academy of Kagina, Rwanda is a unique primary school offering education to children encompassing the greater Kagina region. The children have varying ethnicities and backgrounds. The school is the first of its kind and families travel great distances for the opportunity to learn. Great care was given to designing educational programs that target regional needs of the community. An assembly of young invigorating teachers and staff have come together to change the history of these children. We know this school will have lasting effects for generations to come. We are extremely honored that you have taken the time to learn about our school in Kagina, Rwanda.

…………………………………………………………………………………..

The construction of Crimson Academy of Kagina began in 2009 and took roughly two years to complete. The school opened in January 2011 and began with four large classrooms serving roughly 180 children. Over the next five years, the school has added four additional classrooms to accommodate more children. The school currently educates 440 children. The school is also recognized by the Rwandan government as a primary school.

Kagina Continued

Over the past two years, Crimson Academy of Rwanda has outperformed all primary schools in the entire Southern Province. This has caused for a tremendous need to build additional classrooms. We have been recognized as the top performing school by the Executive Assistant of Runda Sector, the Mayor of the Kamonyi District and the Rwandan Ministry of Education. The success of this school is attributed to the dedication and hard work of the head master and teachers.

We are slowly building a sports program. Our soccer team won the Presidential Kagame Cup during the 2014 school year and won the Kagina Cup in 2015. We hope to develop a solid soccer program that plays on a flat soccer field. SO far our field is very bumpy and we cannot host games nor tournaments.

Micro Loan

Crimson Foundation helps some of the poorest families in the world feed their families, send their children to school, and pay for life saving medicines. We are a very different kind of charity, offering hope, not handouts. By providing small loans (Average $100) and ongoing business training and support, our Microloan program empowers people in developing regions around the world to set up their own self-sustainable businesses. The profits from these businesses enable the women to work themselves and their families out of poverty. We provide loans and ongoing business training to community members. When they’re able, they pay back the loan. We use this money to make more loans, to more people.

  • Loans are invested into businesses. Many of the people will be starting a business for the first time; some will be investing in small businesses they already run but require capital to further develop them and make them profitable. Businesses types vary, including market stalls, bakeries, second-hand clothes shops, and transportation services.
  • Every fortnight, groups receive more training to help ensure the success of their businesses. Topics include market research. pricing and profits, and business planning. During these meetings, people use their business profits to make loan repayments.
  • Repayments are recycled, and reused to make more loans. So every penny that is donated to Crimson Foundation, keeps on giving. Over and over again.
 

Construction

We believe in enhancing the lived experiences of families and communities by providing facilities that aide development, empowerment, and knowledge. This is accomplished by identifying areas of needs within communities and funding various building projects that serve and help communities.  Crimson Foundation helps communities with various construction projects including:

  • Build Schools – In many rural areas in developing countries, schools are essential in transforming the livelihood of children, families and communities from subsistence to hope and opportunity.
  • Build Family Homes – Often the structures that families live in are not stable.  We provide aide in the form of new homes or home improvement.  Some families are scuatters on other people’s land.  We help identify land to build a home for deserving families.  We also help families with remodeling.  We rebuild walls, roofs, and floors.
  • Build Water Systems and Sources – Water is essential to housing and educating children.  Child labor problems and water born illness prevent children from attending school.  By assisting families with community water systems, it ensures children and families have a greater opportunity to lead health lives.
 

Livestock Program

The Crimson Foundation Livestock program helps communities provide for their families.  By providing livestock to families of children that attend Crimson Academy, families are able to use them as a sources of nutrition and commerce.  Two basic needs of sustainable food source and the ability to participate in trade are met within the program. We partner with school PTA organizations to manage community assessment, need, and oversight of the livestock program.  We provide a variety of animals to families including:

  • Chickens
  • Goats
  • Cows
