Thank you for standing with us as we stand with the children of Rwanda. As our Rwandan coaches transform their lives. As wounds once thought unhealable are healed. As those told they were worthless are taught they are worth more than they could have ever imagined.
Thank you for reading our emails. Our blog posts. Asking questions. Challenging us with new ideas. Donating your time, your money, yourselves.
Thank you for responding with urgency when our street children were in their greatest time of need. Together we raised over $40,000 to start an academy for children who had been living off of the streets. Sixteen boys 15 and under who were deemed the most in need have been selected to move in with their coaches to train and attend school with one another. We are working hard now to get final approval and then to move the boys into their new home.
It is our prayer that these boys will become pillars of their country. Once forgotten, they will go on to transform the lives of those around them. That they would be part of a cycle of healing. Of hope of a future. A future that can be good. And that when people see it they would say, surely God was here.
