The organization supports the underprivileged children with school fees, health insurance and school materials.

Airtel Rwanda donated RWF 600,000 that will be used to support 123 students with school materials. Additionally, in order to encourage a healthy child and a brighter future, Airtel also distributed milk to the children.

Speaking at the event, Peace and Hope Initiative representative, Albert Musabyimana said; “We are so grateful for Airtel Rwanda. They have reached out to us and we shall use their donation to help refurbish the centre, buy scholastic materials and pay school fees. This is a true blessing.”
