Founded in 2008, Sanejo, [pronounced SAA-NEH-JO], originates from two shortened words in Kinyarwanda, one of the official languages of Rwanda. “Sana” comes from the verb “gusana” meaning ‘to rebuild’, and “ejo” which means ‘tomorrow’.


Sanejo, through the promotion of education, aims to support communities transiting from war to peace or facing abject poverty. To ensure that all children have a happy and safe place to learn, support is extended to local communities to reconstruct and expand schools. Through local and international partnerships connecting donors with grassroots organizations, Sanejo aims to create sustainable relationships that will strengthen fragile post-conflict societies. Through this support, project partnerships will promote education, health and understanding by working with local communities directly.
