PONTE VEDRA BEACH, FL--(Marketwired - May 19, 2015) - With the help of Fulcrum Partners LLC and the Global Gift Fund of ValMark Securities, five acres of land in Boneza, Rwanda has been secured as the campus for a new school. The vision for the school, known as Kivu Hills Academy, is that it will provide secondary school academic, vocational and entrepreneurial training for high school students and will encourage students to stay in the local community, helping it prosper and grow.

In December 2014, Fulcrum Partners, an executive benefits consultancy with twelve nationwide offices, donated $10,000 to help underwrite the cost of building the school. Fulcrum Partners and the ValMark Global Gift Fund join with the team at Arise Rwanda, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit and faith based organization responsible for the school's development, in celebrating the acquisition of the land. Further progress on the project includes the recent completion of a road providing access to the site. The road was built by volunteer labor from the community.

The property's hillside location offers a scenic vista over Lake Kivu, which Arise Rwanda founder, John B. Gasangwa, believes will help inspire both the students and the community with visions of a promising future for Rwanda. N. Samuel of Genesis Architecture Studio in Kigali is the project architect and Gervais Muremire is project manager.
