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.
