UMUBANO means in Rwandan language “Friendship”. How do we want to express this friendship? By translating our VISION in our MISSION.

Our logo


Stimulate the cooperation between Rwanda and Flanders in order to achieve sustainable development of the country and the people, objects of our friendship. We do it in full conformity to the SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS (SDG) of the UN. Sustainable development of country and people leads to eradication of poverty and hunger.

How we want to realise our Mission:

We collaborate only with local and thrustworthy partners in Rwanda and our main focus is on:

  • the protection of the environment,
  • the equality between men and women,
  • the right to basic education for everyone,
  • the right to education for all through the award of scholarships,
  • the integration into society of persons and children with physical and/or mental limitations,
  • promoting food security mainly in rural areas,
  • the development and the promotion of entrepreneurship in general and female entrepreneurship in particular,
  • supporting capacity building of our local partners to lead to self-reliance,
  • supporting cooperation with Rwanda and the Rwandans and exchange between Flanders and Rwanda.

Through information and sensitization campaigns the Flemish-Rwandan Association UMUBANO wants to involve the Flemish and Belgian public in its actions.

UMUBANO has no paid staff neither in Belgium nor in Rwanda. All Board members, members and staff will do this completely on their own initiative, and selfless. No one will receive any wage, so that our projects profit integrally of all our available resources.

To succeed in our Mission and to achieve our Vision, we need you desperately.  How can you help us?
