Stay and Stand Embrace Rwanda

By Niyomugabo Emmanuel from Rususa Parish, preschool teacher in Embrace Rwanda’s Early Childhood for a Bright Future Program 

You are ready for appreciating

Embrace Rwanda, you took us from a

poor place where the suffering was upon us,

praises and thanks belong to you Embrace Rwanda.


You coming was needed in our Diocese

Mums and their seeds proudly took,

worthy life improvement came,

humbly our hearts fill with joy

as you establish what is needed for us

Stay and stand Embrace Rwanda.


Go on with achievement Embrace Rwanda

In Rwanda for our children

All the best have you as a source

even for their Mums, all get life comfortable

Life for child and mum

Embrace Rwanda, do stand and stay.


Your best, Embrace Rwanda, our kids have talk and comfortable life

Oh Embrace Rwanda!  Your coming is our solution

In Rwanda our home.

Stand and stay Embrace Rwanda


Our children kindly followed your school, they fearlessly learn.

Oh counting, reading and writing their habits have been taken,

while we see and all those in Rwanda.

Hope of life comes and we believe that our future life will come,

Without looking down, Embrace Rwanda


Goats are given from you and their kids are being milked

No disease or poor nutrition

We get manure for activating

Product stocking to our home

We are comfortable.


Stay and stand Embrace Rwanda, we beg you.

Your coming was needed.
