Incyte Biosciences International Sàrl recently supported the Sagapo Children’s Foundation and our Free Hands program in Limassol. During their annual Conference, which was held in Cyprus this January, 180 delegates participated in a team-building activity to assemble desks, bicycles, and bookshelves for the 25 underprivileged children that participate every afternoon in our program.

By taking care and helping children with their homework in a safe and pleasant environment every afternoon, Sagapo assists in their education and at the same time creates the conditions for the working mothers to continue with their jobs without having to worry for their children.

A Mega Thank you to Incyte for helping our cause and making a difference in the lives of these children, also to Drakos DMC for organizing the activity and delivering the bicycles and the furniture to the Free Hands location in Limassol.

We are extremely grateful for the invitation from the journalist Mrs Evelyne Fresinsky to present Sagapo Children Foundation to the Greek Community in Paris and in the World, through the radio broadcast “Elliniki Stigmi” on Sunday the 26th of January 2020.

Delicious hand-finished luxury chocolate sculptures, space balls, trees, and bears as well as other geometrical shapes, were created with love from the famous Cypriot Pastry Chef Chris Tofarides, in order to raise funds for our cause and particularly the “Free Hands” program for underprivileged children, that we are supporting in Limassol.

All the ingredients used were of the highest quality and particularly the Belgian dark and white chocolate. The perfect gift for Xmas and for a good cause. Thank you Chris for your support!

Rwanda , officially the Republic of Rwanda, is situated in Central Africa and is one of the smallest countries on the African mainland. Located a few degrees south of the Equator, Rwanda is bordered by Uganda, Tanzania, Burundi and the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Rwanda is in the African Great lakes region and is highly elevated; its geography is dominated by mountains in the west and Savannah to the east, with numerous lakes throughout the country.

The population is young and predominantly rural, with a density among the highest in Africa. Rwandans are drawn from just one cultural and linguistic group, the Banyarwanda, although within this group there are three subgroups: the Hutu, Tutsi and Twa. Christianity is the largest religion in the country; the principal language is Kinyarwanda, spoken by most Rwandans, with English and French serving as additional official languages.

Sagapo Children’s Foundation is calling for support in order to raise funds and help buying computers for the children at the AHAZAZA Independent School of Rwanda. Ahazaza was founded with the initiative of a small group of people living in Muhanga in October 2005 to provide education of high quality to children coming from rural areas.

The school opened in January 2006 with only one primary class with 17 students, five of which from poor families were on scholarship. After that, the school built two classes, an office and some latrines. It has been legally registered as a non-profit organization recognized by the ministry of education in Rwanda.

Ahazaza computer laboratory has 26 very old computers. Out of these, 16 are old versions of HP desktops; the other 10 are laptops. Out of the 26 computers, 6 desktops and 5 laptops no longer work. This leaves only 15 old computers for the teachers and children to use to conduct computer lessons.
Today, the school has 439 students, 89 of which are on scholarship from poor families. The school recently opened a day care centre (1-2year olds).

Ahazaza’s scholarship programme since its inception has helped more than 300 poor children to access good education. Some of our first students have successfully been accepted in universities in Asia and Europe.

Bam Collective artists have joined forces with Sagapo and organise three consecutive painting and drawing workshops for the underprivileged children ( 8-11 years old ) of the 19th arrondissement in Paris during the month of April . Nils, Arthur, Philippe, Simone and Christina offered their skills and love to the children who attend afternoon classes at the PSG School “Rouge et Bleu” which is run by PSG. Amazing experience! Unique moments of love and sharing.

A Mega Thank you to all the volunteer artists of Bam Collective, but also to the amazing and smiling children who attended the workshops. A huge Thank you also to PSG for joining forces with Sagapo Children’s Foundation for a good cause.
