Our Story: Seeing the Potential of Every Rwandan Girl

A Model of Philanthropic Partnership

A Model of Philanthropic Partnership

The Maranyundo Girls School, which opened in 2008, began with the unlikely collaboration of a South Boston nun, a beloved Rwandan leader, a group of visionary women from Boston and a Rwandan order of Roman Catholic nuns.

In 2010 the school was transferred to Rwandan leadership with continued financial and programmatic support from the Maranyundo Initiative. This unique philanthropic partnership is founded on respect and shared accountability, reflecting Rwanda’s spirit of reconciliation and rebuilding.

Educating Girls:         A Powerful Force for Change

Educating Girls: A Powerful Force for Change

Our mission is to offer economically vulnerable girls access to academic excellence. Our magic is a deeply held belief that every girl in this diverse community – regardless of family finances or background – can achieve great things.

The school’s performance tells the story:  Its first graduating class ranked #1 among all middle schools for girls in the country and every class since has met or exceeded this standard.  This is a remarkable achievement for a school where 50% of its students come from impoverished circumstances and under-performing schools.

Hope is a Rwandan Girl

Hope is a Rwandan Girl

Girls are agents of change. They play a crucial role in solving the most persistent development problems in the world today.
The Maranyundo girl's stories will touch you, teach you, inspire you.

A walk around the Maranyundo campus is inspiration:
It is girls laughing and helping each other in study hall.
It is a chorus of song and poetry created together. It is the quiet of an attentive classroom.

It is community. It is learning. It is the future of Rwanda.

"Education of children, especially girls, is the cornerstone to National Progress."- UNICEF Executive Director Ann M. Veneman
