The German newspaper ‘GEA’ says that the purchasing power of Rwanda, Ethiopia and the Ivory Coast is growing fast. The economy seems to improve. Some European enterprises see this as a chance to make more money by exporting to these three countries. Others think that these prognosis are still too shaky and thus don’t invest more money than they already do into exports to these countries.

‘Deutschlandfunk’ says that this week two people from Congo died and one came down with ebola. As a result Rwanda now closed its gates to prevent any potentially infected Congolese people from entering Rwanda.

There are many different aid-organizations like ‘SOS Kinderdörfer’ or ‘Die Kinder- und Jugendhilfe Ruanda’ that support Rwanda by donating one single female goat to children and adolescents from very poor families and even to orphans. They hope that this way these children will somehow find a way to earn their living. Now ‘Dein Spiegel’ a German monthly newspaper interviewed some of these children to see what they’re doing with their life. Whether they became dairy farmers or people who sold their goat’s offspring to the butcher or people who sold their goat’s excrement as fertilizer. Even starting their own farming business and using the goat’s excrement as fertilizer themselves was an option. One story impressed them the most, so they published this girl’s whole story. She was an orphan when she received this donor-goat. The mayor of her village had three males (bucks). So she explained to him that she wanted her goat to have kits she could sell and whether or not he would mind having one of his bucks mate with the goat. The mayor was very kind and allowed her to have her goat mate with the buck whenever she pleased. However she must donate the first kit so that other poor people could have a chance, too. That was the deal! Meanwhile the goat is pregnant for the 3rd time, but healthy due to being cared for well by its owner. The second kit she delivered was sold and the girl still uses the money to go to school as for her standards books, pencils and all were just too expensive before she had the money her goat earned her. She considers keeping the goat’s next kit and become a breeder.

‘Tagesschau’ says that today there are going to be parliamentary elections in Rwanda.
Even though this is still one of the poorest countries in the world according to the article they still are more advanced than most other least developed countries.
For example they:
>banned plastic bags to limit environmental pollution
>have a crime rate that is extremely low compared to other least developed countries
>have an animal wellfare act
>make sure that politicians, police officers, judges and administration offices are not corrupt
>have an increasing economical sector
>have the highest number of female members of all parliaments in the world.

Re-upload: As the name says the organization “German Doctors E.V.” is an association of doctors from Germany and they think that as doctors they have the duty to help everyone who is sick or injured no matter whether or not he can afford the treatment. So these 332 doctors are sent to very poor countries, like Rwanda where they heal the poor without even getting paid.
However “German Doctors E.V.” urgently needs more money which people can send to:
EKK-Bank
Bank Account Number: 4 88 888 0
Bank Code: 520 604 10

Re-upload: According to the German website where I found it, this photo shows a Rwandan street child. If you want to learn about two organisations that help them and maybe even want to get involved yourself, then you should visit the following websites: “http://www.streetkidsofrwanda.org/newspage.html” and “http://www.ubakaurwanda.org.uk/projects”.
