Forty-four vulnerable families in Kigali are telling a different story after they were given shelter as part of the celebration to mark the 26th anniversary of liberation of Rwanda.
The families from the three districts of Kigali saw Rwf336million invested in several projects to find them decent homes that were launched on Julu 3rd,2020.
In Nyarugenge district, 8-1 storied houses worth Rwf228million were inaugurated to accommodate 8 families in Kankuba model village, Mageragere sector. Each family was accommodated in a-two bedroom unit.
“Liberation is not begged; it is fought for. Ours started back in the 1990s but it goes on with development ambitions,” Emmy Ngabonziza, district Executive Administrator of Nyarugenge district said.
“Without working hard for further development and defending what has been achieved, the liberation will be futile.”

This brings the total number of accomodated families to 80, with 313 family members.
