Introducing Pastor Steven from Rwanda:

Pastor Steven

Pastor Steven Turikunkiko has set up a community in Rwanda for victims of the genocide. 160 widows & teenagers & 80 younger children live with him; farming, sharing their lives and caring for those dying from AIDS. The community subsists on less than $1 per person per day.

At enormous personal sacrifice, Pastor Steven and his wife have also adopted 20 orphans - who live with them and their 2 other children.

New School for Refugees

South Africa flagA new school has opened in Johannesburg for 110 child refugees. These children cannot access state education so, at the Three2Six school, they are taught literacy, numeracy and language development.

Research has shown 35% of child refugees in South Africa do not have access to education. This may be due to language difficulties, refugees not being able to afford schooling or the schools themselves being under-resourced.

Three2Six was opened in March 2008. It is a collaboration between the Sacred Heart College, the Refugees Ministries Centre and the Coordinating Body of Refugee Communities. The children who attend come mainly from Rwanda, Congo, Burundi, Cameroon and Zimbabwe. All children are given a school uniform and a free meal each day.

Jean-Claude Mbaki, project co-ordinator says, "This school is a good example of what can be achieved when African communities work together. I hope it inspires more partnerships like this in years to come."
