Frequently asked questions
Understandably donors want to support a REACH’s mission, but many don’t understand that incurring administrative costs is not bad – instead, those costs are essential for mission advancement. Nonetheless, when you make a donation to a nonprofit, you can signal intent for that donation to be spent in a particular way. However, the most useful donation is often an unrestricted donation. This will allow the REACH to allocate your donation to the area of greatest need.

Reach Rwanda is a brain child of Rev. Philbert Kalisa who was born and grew up as a refugee in Burundi. He received a calling to serve God. He went abroad for Pastoral and theological studies and he mooted the idea to start REACH the first time he came to Rwanda during the post genocide era of 1995.
