BFSS would like to congratulate David Chaplin on the award of an OBE in the New Year’s Honours for services to disadvantaged and vulnerable people in South West Rwanda.
David spent six months in Rwanda in 2003, shortly after retiring from Vinehall School in Robertsbridge, Sussex, where he was headmaster for 25 years. After seeing the suffering first hand, David continued his charity work there, setting up Rwanda Aid in 2008.
We at BFSS are pleased to have supported the work of Rwanda Aid through a grant in 2013 towards the construction of four classrooms and a new toilet block at the school in Nyabigoma in South West Rwanda. We are delighted that the work has been successfully completed and the well constructed buildings are now in use.
We would welcome further applications from UK registered charities for educational projects in Rwanda.
