Help Orphans in Rwanda

I am an English/Art/Yoga teacher at an orphanage in Kigali, Rwanda (streetkidsofrwanda.org). I'm raising money to buy art supplies and school supplies for the children, as well as whatever else I see that they need such as clothes, medical care, toiletries, etc. I would also like to buy them some solar powered lamps to use during the nightly power outages, and see if I can do anything about the walkway in front of the building that is eroding and quite dangerous.
There are over 50 children varying in age from 2 to 17 years old and they are the absolutely sweetest and cutest people you could ever meet. The little ones love to draw and color and they scream with excitement when I start handing out paper. They also really enjoy learning new words and singing songs. The older kids love to study English and their biggest requests are longer classes and extra homework. They were extremely grateful to receive notebooks and pens so they could practice writing.
I want to expose the children to different methods of creating artwork, and help them practice their English skills while we have fun and learn from each other.
I also want to give others the opportunity to help improve the lives of the orphans.
Your donation will be greatly appreciated by us.
Thank you!
