Itetero Iwacu

Itetero Iwacu is a Kinyarwanda-based name which stands for a comfortzone for children, where they are nurtured with love, compassion, and good example. Iwacu means “at home”. Itetero Iwacu Organization is a nonprofit organization that helps rural and vulnerable kids to access a quality education (through Itetero Bright Academy); refine nutrition (through schoolfeeding programs and community  nutrition workshops); as well as advocating for kids living with non-communicable or congenital diseases, for effective healthcare services.


Our Story

60 miles from Kigali, the capital city of Rwanda, Mvumba is a village in Ngoma district with many children but without access to a preschool education.

In national exams, the students of a nearby primary school, Ecole Primaire Mvumba, failed 100% in 2014 and last year 2017. After failure in National Exams, students prefer to continue their studies in the 12 years’ basic education day program, rather than joining schools of excellence and stay in boarding sections to focus on academics.
