Charity alone doesn't work... but vocational training can transform a life!

Rwanda is healing from the evil of the Genocide Against the Tutsi. But thousands of young people, most of whom have lost family, are suffering under the heavy weight of poverty. Unless they break free from the cycle of poverty, they are at risk of hunger and disease.

The next generation, often called the “lost generation” is the future of Rwanda. Unless they are trained and equipped, they may become vulnerable to the same forces that caused the Genocide of 1994.

These young people want to hard work to provide for themselves and their families. However, they live on less than $2 per day and are not able to attend University. They need vocational training and mentoring to make their dreams reality.

Through Rwanda Rise and Hope Vocational Training Center, you can provide training to one young Rwandan in carpentry, culinary arts, hairdressing, masonry, sewing, and welding. These trade skills open doors to jobs, new businesses and provide hope for the future. 90% of our graduates find gainful employment in their field of study. For only a small investment, these students will reap benefits for years to come.
