To celebrate, the Orphanage is holding a benefit which will include a raffle for some fantastic prizes including 2 nights in Volcanoes Kyambura Gorge Lodge. Tickets for the raffle can be purchased at designated ticket locations in advance or on the night. The cost is 500Frw each or for 5,000 you can have a total of 11.

The price of the evening is 15,000Frw, which includes all food and the first drink. Tickets can be bought from either Zen or the Volcanoes Safaris Rwandan office in Kigali. The benefit itself will be held at the Heaven Restaurant in Kigali. All proceeds from the event will go to the Imbabazi Foundation who work all year round to improve the lives of the children in Rwanda. The Imbabazi Orphanage was established by Roz Carr to care for children lost or orphaned by the Rwanda genocide of 1994. The orphanage is called Imbabazi, which means “a place where you will receive all the love and care a mother would give.”

Volcanoes Safaris have a close bond with the orphanage; Praveen Moman, one of the Co-Founders of Volcanoes also sits on the board of the charity. As well as providing education and vocational education, Imbabazi offers a warm, loving and safe environment for the children in its care. Since it opened in December 1994, the orphanage has cared for more than 400 children. The orphanage is currently home to 110 children.

“Rwanda is my home. It’s beauty is my inspiration. It’s struggles have been my struggles. It’s grief has been my deepest sorrow. It’s people are my strength and it’s children are my greatest joy.” – Roz Carr.
