The fundraising event will be held on Friday.

Starting at 7pm, this fundraising event is being held to raise money for a group of girls and young women in Rwanda, Africa. The Ubushobozi Project was started in Musanze, Rwanda in November, 2008 by Alan and Jeanne Siporin and Laura Boyea.

The goal of the project is to empower girls who live in poverty and/or are the head of household. This is done through education, life skills and other job related training.

Training in sewing, weaving, English, women’s issues, business, computer and yoga is provided to the girls as a way to enable them to sustain themselves and their families.

There are currently 11 girls and eight local staff members who benefit from the project. The money raised at the May 3 event will be used to help sustain and grow the project. Another such event was held in November, 2012 and the proceeds were used to help an additional girl.

As the project has grown, many new programmes have been added to help the girls and women become independent and to care for their families.

However, it costs money to develop these programmes which, along with the monthly budget that covers salaries, rent, utilities, medical, food and materials, are difficult to sustain.

The project relies on the sale of the products the girls create, donations and fundraising.

There are two choices of tickets for the event.

One includes an Africa buffet, two drinks and live entertainment. The cost for this ticket is B750. The second choice includes one welcome drink and live music for the price of B350.

A short presentation will be given by Jeanne Siporin and Petra Teslerova. All proceeds from this event go directly to the project.
