Despite making great strides in economic and social stability, Rwandans daily face the tragic repercussions of the 1994 Genocide Against the Tutsi, where over 1.2 million people were murdered in 100 days, leaving behind devastated survivors and a torn nation.

About HOPE-Rwanda

HOPE’s vision is to see Rwanda's most marginalized youth become confident, fulfilled and faithful leaders, contributing to the sustainable development of Rwanda. HOPE’s dream is that the orphans of Rwanda will see their God-given destinies come to fruition and be facilitators of God’s good purposes for the nation.

HOPE’s mission is to foster the educational, physical, social, emotional, economic and spiritual growth of the most marginalized youth/young adults of Rwanda, i.e. the orphaned and homeless young men and women, most of whom were street children, and including those with acute or chronic, mental and physical illnesses.
