Hope Shines, Inc. works with Orphans & Vulnerable Children (OVC) beneficiaries living in the urban sectors of Nyarugenge District (located in the capital city of Kigali) and who qualify for our intervention programs. We strive to offer OVC continuous opportunities for empowerment, encouragement, and supplementary education through meaningful activities with strong role models, both foreign and local to their communities. We have goals of reducing district school drop-out rates, promoting gender equality, and using education and mentor-ship as a means to increase a child’s confidence and knowledge to lift themselves from poverty.
To enhance and improve the lives of orphans and vulnerable children in Rwanda through unique education and health programs.
We envision a Rwanda where vulnerable youth are empowered to achieve their fullest potential and become leaders in their communities.
Everything we do, we do honestly and in a transparent manner and we do what we say we will do.
We believe that the lasting path to youth development is through operating sustainably, both financially and programmatic.
In all that we do, we will always put the children we serve as our top priority and provide a safe environment from which to learn.
All children have the right to live happy and healthy lives, no matter their status in society and Hope Shines will provide every opportunity towards this.
We will constantly seek to positively impact children by optimizing our resources at all times when those resources are available.
