Six years before the Rwandan Civil War / Genocide of 1994, the Swiss Othmar Würth (Brothers of the Christian Schools FEC, also known as La Salle Brothers) founded the "Centre Intiganda", a centre for street children in the southern city of Butare-Huye. Our centre provides street children with the security, supervision and support they need on their path towards living a dignified and independent life. Our work focuses on three key areas:
The Centre Intiganda is embedded in the Catholic Church, however its work is interdenominational. It is supported by the Frères des Écoles Chrétiennes – FEC, both in the pedagogical as well as in the administrative areas. The FEC are committed to children, schools and education around the world. Our eleven staff members are all Rwandans, qualified both on a personal and as well as on a professional level.
