With this discovery new life began for the children in Rubanda. The first private nursery and primary school were opened in 2004 to offer both day and boarding school opportunities. It was also to offer these same opportunities to both boy and girl children. With this school, life will never been the same again for children in Rubanda.

The journey to build this confidence has not been so easy. Though creating a sense of equal opportunities has been our major focus our main obstacle and resistance has been the culture, social and economic poverty. These are the major barriers to rural development However, our success has been great by creating a big difference in our gender sensitive education policies. For example in 2005 only 20% of our students were girls compared to 80% of boys. Today things have changed with 45% boys and 55% girls present in our school capacity of 288 students.
Our great appreciation goes to each and every one who has contributed to this great adventure and opportunity for our children: parents and children, community volunteers, donors and administration
