Rwanda, a beautiful country, called the land of a thousand hills, has been ravaged by the genocide of 1994, where over 1 million people were brutally murdered in less than 100 days.
Now, so many years later, we see its effects taking a toll on families and children. Those orphaned by genocide, now vulnerable and in poverty, are having families of their own.
Parents work hard to survive but don’t have the skills or examples necessary to raise their children well. The result leaves many children turning to the streets to survive.
But there is hope. Our vision is to bring healing to the people of Rwanda (body, mind and spirit) by providing basic needs in the short-term, with the long-term goal of becoming self-sufficient. Working in the community, within the families of the poor and vulnerable, we seek lasting life change.
