Programs: FONMAC is a non-governmental organization that conducts its activities on the whole territory of the republic of Rwanda. The organization is aimed at caring both children and women especially those in critical condition and poverty. We are nowadays focusing on helping children to get basic materials that can help them to keep studying. We found that a hungry student drop out from school. We try to help poor learners to get food and initiate them to start small projects that will help them to be entrepreneurs at their young age. We help mothers to join hands in cooperatives so that they can think together and uproot poverty in their societies. Strengthening women in their families is the key concept to develop families as they are the corner stone of the family. They are even the ones to give basic education to their children. We have a big concern about environment where we plant a big number of fruits tress and vegetables in order to protect our environment and fight against malnutrition in our community. We find many solutions in planting fruit trees and vegetables especially protecting environment, fighting against malnutrition and being income generating activity.

Rwanda as a country that came from far, a country that encountered difficulty period of genocide needed to be rebuilt by its own children, which is what FONMAC did, care for and support children and mothers helped to build a strong foundation, a hope for a bright future, and self esteem for Rwandan children.
