The Trust

 

The Amakuru Trust was established in September 2012 - specifically to help the people of Rwanda.  It has been set up with the assistance of Amakuru (UK) Limited, a company offering education services and specialist travel.  The reason for establishing the Trust was to channel funds raised by UK donors (especially, but not exclusively, those undertaking their “Rwandan Journey” – the Amakuru Ambassadors) into meaningful and effective projects in Rwanda.

 

Our Name

 

In Kinyarwanda (the language of Rwanda,) greeting someone with the expression “Amakuru”, literally means “How are you?”

Therefore the aim of the Amakuru Trust is that the respnse from their beneficiaries will always be “Ni meza” or "I’m fine."
