  • Description


    Welcome to Gisenyi, Rubona, Rwanda. My name is Steven Stable and I am the founder of this organization with my brother Desire Tuyishime. We lost our families during 1994 Genocide in Rwanda. We grew up our whole lives in orphanage where we considered it home. This is where Desire and I met. The orphanage closed in 2015 due to the government wanting all orphans to be adopted and feel loved in other homes. After being shifted to this village, we found many children in the same situations like we were in past years. It is when the idea sparked of how to help these children in order to have better, healthier lives. 3 years ago we came up with this NGO. We help poor families, we reach and link their children in schools as best as we can, we too help them in their everyday lives. With these children, we try to give them the opportunities that any other children could have. We try to provide them a good education, health care and the basic needs. We try to visit their homes and their families in the best of our abilities. We provide them food, clothes, shelter and whatever we can afford for them. We have 44 adopted children at the moment but we still looking for more sponsorship because we still have so many children in want of this opportunity. And we hope we can help more.

  • Aide


    At the moment, we would need your help with whatever skills you can bring to our team. We mostly need help with basic child care for our students. Such as bathing the poor children that are too small to do it themselves, washing their clothes, cooking for them, teaching them basic english through songs and dialogs, playing games with them etc. We are always open to start new projects and get new ideas to give these children the best lives possible

    Current specific needs:
    House- we need to fix our water reservoir. Anyone with this skill will be greatly appreciated.

    Community needs
    Our guests/volunteers are not really aware of the needs of the community. It is a very poor community where there is a great need for old clothes of all ages and sexs, toys for kids, learning materials like books, pens, our place ( library ) is rent , we needs soaps for washing kids, milk for kids, fruits for kids they take during break (recreation ) that's why we request anyone with that kind heart to at least help with any amount of finance affordable. I had feedback to include this to the page as volunteers could bring the above from their countries.

    We appreciate any help that is given to us and the community.
