How you can change lives
The years 2020 and 2021 have proven to be ones of great change around the world. Change that has deeply impacted our lives, communities and the beneficiaries we serve.
Our commitment to supporting traumatized Rwandans and their children remains strong. That’s why we’re participating in Giving Tuesday this November 30.
Giving Tuesday is an annual global day of giving and generosity of all kinds, big and small, and we invite you to join us.
Where your money goes
Healing retreats and community building
Plans are underway for 4 new retreats this February but we need your help! The retreats help Rwandans heal from trauma, build sustaining friendships and continue their healing journeys through ongoing counselling and leadership training.
Counselling, visiting and food and sanitary supply distribution
There is an ongoing need to help the most vulnerable with basic needs. And a visit reminds them that they are loved and not forgotten.
Safe and caring childcare
The daycare is growing! Your donation helps pay for caring staff, supplies and healthy breakfasts. The children learn skills to get them ready for school and play with other children, regardless of tribal background.
Educational support for children and youth
Education provides hope for the future for our beneficiaries. From supplies, school fees and uniforms for children, to assistance with university sponsorship, education is the pathway out of poverty for families.
Being computer-literate helps our beneficiaries gain employment and become self-sufficient. Students learn skills in working with computers, business software and English. Classes have resumed and we have 7 new students.
Learning sewing skills helps women make an income to support their families. The current class has 15 students! But we need your help to buy 2 more sewing machines.
Music and dance performance training
Not only does music and dance reinforce cultural traditions and promote friendships, it can train youth for paid work at special events like weddings or other celebrations.
You CAN make a difference!
