We have triumphed in the face of adversity throughout the pandemic. A lighthouse is a beacon of strength, a symbol of hope. We continue to see the light at the end of the storm. As the year ends, we ask for your help to bring this lighthouse to the children of Rwanda.
Rising Above the Storms (RAS), in partnership with Amahoro Builders, has stood frontline in the continued fight of bridging the socioeconomic gap in education, career growth and quality of life for these children.
As we look back on this year, we remember our core pillars of empowerment, community, and empathy. We’ve had our first high school graduation. We’ve started selling merchandise on the Cisco store. We’ve sent our first shipment to Rwanda with items including jerseys, shorts, shoes, etc. These are our proudest moments of 2021 and have acted as our anchors to help us weather the storm.
What will this fundraiser achieve? Here are some of our initiatives in the new year:
• Launch College fund for High School Graduates
• Career & vocational training
• Expand extracurricular activities: music instruments & soccer training
These children need a lighthouse. Be their beacon of strength! Will you join us and donate?
Thank you very much,
RAS Fundraiser Team
