Cobra and Mongoose are currently building a childcare facility in Rwanda. They are working with a NGO in Rwanda – Rwanda Volcanoes Opportunity Association. This facility will provide childcare for 35 children who will also be supplied with meals during the 8 hrs per day in care.
Universal Charitable Funds made a donation towards the KINIGI-MUSANZE daycare facility in Rwanda to support the fit out and equipment purchases for the childcare facility which will allow it to open in early 2020. The childcare centre will enable the local women child-free time to be able to work in this potato growing area and break the cycle of poverty within this region and during the build help the community in employing local labourers.
UCF directors felt the “ripple effect” will be felt throughout the community, as it is anticipated the reach of this building will be the entire village – care of the children, enabling the mothers to work, helping break the family poverty cycle and providing a structure for other uses within the community.
