The National Youth Council (NYC) on Friday commenced the construction of a house for a group of eight orphans living Nyagasozi cell, sick Bumbogo sector of Gasabo district.

This initiative comes from the authorities of the Youth council who visit these youth to know what they need as support to sustain their well being.

The National Youth Council’s Coordinator, doctor Norbert Shyerezo said they decided to reconstruct the building from scratch because it had a weak foundation and had deep cracks in the walls..


NYC coordinator stressed that they will work with authorities of Bumbogo sector to finish the house in two months time.

Jean Nzeyimana one of the orphans, site said they were doubtful on the future of their fragile home but the National youth council’s support comes at a good time.

“Once this home is built, we will be able to develop ourselves. We hope to start business projects.” Nzeyimana said.

The members of the National Youth Council have also made two kitchen gardens for widows in Nyagasozi cell.

In 2015, Rwandan Youth organised special community services across the Country to become solutions to challenges that the Nation faces.

More than 20,000 kitchen gardens have been raised to support poor families, and other people sensitised by youth to plant vegetables to fight malnutrition.

Rwandan Youth also participated in repairing the playgrounds to promote sports activities and leisure in Rwandan Community.

Rwanda National Youth Council is a government institution responsible to facilitate and encourage youth to participate in socio-economic development and transformation to peaceful, prosperous and sustainable society.
