MAHUI DIAZ FIRST MEETING WITH FAMILIES SUPPORTED BY ONE LIGHT RWANDA

On 17th October 2016, a Germany volunteer met families to know each other as she will stay with One Light for one year. During the meeting, parents were happy to meet her and they will learn a lot from her during the visits she will make in their families. We have treated the issues which families face such as lack of food, 5 famileis without shelter, and some families which houses need to be repaired. We thinked about how to request anyone who can help within country or donation from anyone who wish to help poor families to have food, house and school materials

ONE LIGHT Rwanda


One Light is a social organization founded and registered in 2012 with Code 102614802 to improve the quality of life and opportunity for the most vulnerable members of our society.

The latest statistics from local Rwandan Government show there to be 10% / 4000 families living in ‘extreme poverty’ in Musanze District. The standard of living is rising but the poorest families are being left behind to face severe challenges:

  • Food provision = malnutrition, ill-health
  • Access to healthcare = ill-health, preventable disease
  • Cost of sending children to school = illiteracy, unemployment
  • Lack of jobs and job skills = high unemployment, crime
  • Fight Women based Violence


The principal cause of these problems is the cycle of poverty and the lack of opportunities for children and families to break free. However the successes we have achieved give us hope. One Light is supporting 70 children and their families with schooling and 89 youth with vocational training linked to job opportunities.

As laid out in this Strategic Plan, our work is focussed on two key programmes:

  1. Pathways out of Poverty – providing sustainable means for the poorest families to support themselves
  2. Opportunity School – vocational training linked to business demand for skills

Both programmes focus on the poorest and most vulnerable members of our society, principally children. This proposal outlines the operations, people, finances and sponsors needed to achieve our goals.

Overall organisational strategies are identified to help achieve these goals, foremost of which is to become the coordinating force binding the valuable work of many local NGOs and associations in Musanze.

The plan finishes by breaking down the 5 year vision into specific and measurable yearly goals, to help us evaluate our progress and focus on specific tasks.

Mission

One Light’s mission is to ensure every child and family in Musanze Distrcits - especially the poorest and most vulnerable - have access to healthcare, education and an opportunity to break free of poverty.

Vision

  • Develop self-sustaining programmes / social enterprises – helping the local community to help themselves
  • Be a hub for local associations
  • Provide training responsive to local business demand for skills
  • Promote local growth - establish business network of local employers
  • Leave no-one behind

 Values

  • Transparency – making all decisions, finances and results open and accessible to all
  • Awareness – showing care and understanding for all people’s circumstances, actively listening to and identifying the needs of our community
  • Collaboration – being a coordinating force for alleviation of poverty and business development
  • Organisation – giving a clear structure and order to our work and measuring our performance
  • Integrity – doing the right thing, not the easy thing
