Gihogwe Secondary School
was established by Geoff Lane, a retired HR manager, in 2004. After working in India with street children for 3 years, he visited Rwanda in 1999 and saw a country trying to get back on its feet after the genocide. Many widows were being forced into prostitution in order to provide food and housing for their children and there were many children desperate to go to school. Various projects were established before the charity was formed and these included upgrading and expanding two primary schools, building a handicraft centre to employ widows and orphans, and sponsoring children to attend secondary school.
