The Rukundo International Scholar’s Program provides scholarships to high-performing students from rural areas who would otherwise be unable to continue their education, due to financial hardships. The Scholars Program, under the direction of our Social Worker, strives to meet not only the educational needs of our students, but also their physical, spiritual, and emotional needs. Our Scholars are required to attend Holiday Retreats, where they receive additional training and mentorship, as well as spiritual guidance. In addition, Scholars are required to complete three student-led community service projects per year, to foster and encourage community involvement. Educational progress is closely monitored, and healthy home environments are encouraged by assisting caregivers.
