Sport For Rwanda

·         Fundraising to Enable Hundreds of Thousands of Children to Take Part in Sport in Rwandan Schools


·         Bury St Edmunds has been chosen to host the Rwandan Olympic and Paralympic teams as they prepare for London 2012 at a Pre-Games Training Camp.


·         The Sport for Rwanda fundraising appeal was launched in 2011 to ensure the legacy of the Pre-Games Training Camp stretches far beyond 2012.


·         Sport For Rwanda aims to raise £80,000 to provide 140 schools in Rwanda with sports equipment, a place to store it and educational materials to help teachers run sports lessons.


·         In 1994, Rwanda was torn apart by a brutal and swift genocide. As a result large numbers of people live in poverty; disease and lack of education remain big issues in Rwanda.


·         Sport and PE are not taught in Rwandan schools so this appeal will give more than 100,000 Rwandan schoolchildren the ability to take part in sport and leave a lasting legacy from London 2012.


·         The Sport For Rwanda fundraising appeal was launched by the St Edmundsbury Olympic Steering Group which is overseeing the legacy from the Pre-Games Training Camp. The group is working with UK-based registered charity Rwanda Aid on this project. This small charity works closely with the Rwandan Government, both at local and national levels.
