Program 1

Education

In some of the communities that we serve, only one out of every two children can afford to go to school. Our goal is to ensure that every child has access to quality education. Children have the right to access an education that provides them with the tools they need to grow up into self-sustaining adults. The best way to ensure change in any community is to educate its children in a way that releases them to become responsible and able citizens.

Asante supports four primary schools in Rwanda, Uganda and Burundi. Asante hires and supports top qualified teachers with a smaller teacher to student ratio, offers after school tutoring, and provides free uniforms, shoes and supplies to the children as well as one meal a day in a Christian environment. The schools also run extra-curricular activities such as music, arts and craft. All Asante’s schools are funded through our child sponsorship program which makes it possible for the children to receive all their school supplies, school uniforms and one hot meal at school everyday.

ORGANIZATIONAL DEMOGRAPHICS

In order to support nonprofits and gain valuable insight for the sector, GuideStar worked with D5—a five-year initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—in creating a questionnaire. This section is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff. Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).
