About Us & Objectives

Ruanda Stiftung Family Christian Schleuning, short 'Ruanda Stiftung' (=Rwanda Foundation), is a non-profitable, public foundation under civil law. It was founded in August 2007 by Dr. Christian Schleuning and was officially recognized in September 2007 based on the Foundation's Law of the German Federal Land Rhineland-Palatinate. The registered office is based in 76829 Landau, Germany.

The foundation was established with the aim of improving the living conditions of poor children in Africa on a sustainable basis and to stimulate entrepreneurship for self-development of society. Ruanda Stiftung focuses it's special attention on projects that inure to the benefit of socially disadvantaged children like orphans, street kids, disabled, children with a disease or children seriously affected by poverty. The school and secondary education is just as important as basic medical care and the supply of food, clothing and shelter. 

Ruanda Stiftung works closely together with the Partnership Rhineland-Palatinate. The state itself is keeping a close partnership with Rwanda for over 25 years now. Ruanda Stiftung is cooperating with the charitable association of the partnership, the  "Rheinland-Pfalz-Ruanda e.V.", known in Rwanda as "Jumelage" (www.rlp-ruanda.de) in a variety of projects.

Philosophy

Ruanda Stiftung operates on the principle "Help to self-help" by strengthening, for example, the individual initiative of families as long as they can help themselves. The measures range from the allocation of animals to repayable micro-credits for small-scale entrepreneurs.

The foundation is working closely with local partners on all projects, such as local organizations, schools, religious institutions, groups or individuals and are involved in all stages of the project. They contribute actively to the success of the projects on their own responsibility.
