  • Beschreibung


    Our ministry is an ODV with a registered office in France. It operates in Rwanda, specifically in Burima Village, district Rubavu, sector Nyamyumba, cell Rubona.

    The idea of this association has born in 2017 from Etienne and Desire: two Rwandan guys that grew up in orphanage due to the 1994 genocide. When the orphanage closed in 2015 they came to Burima village and saw in which situation the children and their families were living. Steven and Desire decided to give them support.

    Thanks to the help of numerous volunteers they could rent a house where to organise simple school classes and cook some simple meals. In 2021 was finally founded the Ministry to give a bigger support to the project and secure the rights of the donators.

    At our ministry we give shelter to children that have nowhere to go because they are left alone from their parents all day long. The young mothers and the poor families, already broken by poverty and hunger, have no time and will to take care of them. Most of them have to spend the day working in the city or in Congo and they are away from home from the morning to the night. We reach out to the most endangered children, giving them basic education, some meals and emotional support.

    We and the children of Burima are looking forward to meet you! ❣️

  • Unterkunft


    You will have the unique opportunity to live as Rwandan local people do. One room can accommodate two volunteers with a double bed and another can welcome one volunteer. Those two rooms are located inside the school Ministry. There is electricity to charge your phones and computers.
    The dry toilet is outside. As you can imagine, there is no tap system. The showers are done with a bucket of water, heated if necessary. There are no cleaning middles: bring from home what you need to clean the surfaces in your room.

    Meals: You will share dinner and a simple breakfast with the house family. You can cook yourself a lunch or go to eat at a restaurant in Gisenyi. We do not ask for a specific amount of money but you must be able to buy or to let them buy food and share it with the family: count on an expense of 5.000 RWF per day to feed yourself and your partner if you are a couple and another 7 people.
