[23 Nov 2017 | Comments Off on Casement | ]

Casement is the Kigali-based initiative of our dear friend and collaborator Veronica Crowley, who seeks to empower local entrepreneurs with the capital and strategic consulting they need to develop and maintain their businesses. On a macro level, this project will stimulate the local economy and create jobs, both of which are critical components of a safe and stable community. Pens To People is proud to support Casement.

CHABHA (Children Affected By HIV/AIDS) raises funds for grassroots projects in Rwanda and Burundi that care for orphans and other children affected by HIV/AIDS. The community-based groups that CHABHA supports are led by young adults who understand children’s needs because they too lost parents at an early age. CHABHA’s vital role in these communities is sustained through adulthood via CHABHA’s Project Independence, which partners with local tradesmen to provide hands-on vocational training. You can learn more about CHABHA and the great work they do here.
