We are excited about our impact in Rwanda!!

Our sponsorship program includes benefits for Primary and Secondary students of families (mostly) in the villages of Akindege and Kabagendwa in Kigali, Rwanda. Additionally, we help the entire household for each family to obtain health insurance.

Every dollar that you donate matters. When you give generously, you help us to provide essential Primary, Secondary, and Vocational school scholarships to vulnerable children. We greatly appreciate your contributions that allow us to partner with these families in Rwanda.
