Empowering through Education and Discipleship
The effects of the 1994 Rwandan genocide still linger in a form of systemic poverty. 62% of Rwandan youth have either never been to school or have not completed primary school according to the Rwanda National Census of 2012. Through our Acts4Achievers sponsorship program, we currently serve over 130 children in grades 1-12 (Primary 1-6 and Secondary 7-12) and ten university students.
We believe that through education and personal discipleship, our students will be able to thrive. Acts4Rwanda was created to defend the cause of the needy and vulnerable. By concentrating on holistic education, we can transform lives and create opportunity, empowerment, and hope for Rwanda’s poorest.
We are proud that over 90 cents of every dollar donated goes directly to our students.
Our in-country staff is intimately connected with the surrounding community, intentionally looking for children from at-risk homes suffering from abuse and neglect.
By concentrating on holistic education we can transform lives, create opportunity, and bring hope and empowerment for Rwanda’s most vulnerable children.
