Perched on top of a hill overlooking Kigali, the Kimisagara is a live-in centre for abandoned children. It was established in 2002 by Antoine Bizimana & the Street Kids of Rwanda organisation. The aim was to give refuge to children forced by social circumstances to live rough on the streets, providing them with safety, food and schooling when funds were available.
In March 2011 heavy rains caused a landslide destroying part of the centre. Although heavily committed on other projects, PF raised an amazing £65,000 through donors to sustain the children’s welfare between 2011–2013 and introduced the centre to other international organisations who offered their support.
