Sponsor a Student

One of our core values is the Commitment to Children. In all that we do, we will ALWAYS put the children we serve as our top priority in ALL WAYS and provide a safe environment in which to grow and prosper. At-risk boys and girls living in Rwanda have unique challenges and we constantly seek to address them, through the support and feedback from our all-Rwandese in-country staff, as they grow into adults!

A sponsorship of a student at Hope Shines means they can be provided a hot meal, get their basic needs supplied so they can attend school full time, gain confidence from a positive learning environment, and get mentorship support that will result in a positive outcome as they reach adulthood! Below outlines individual profiles of each Hope Shines child.

"My connection with my child has made me more aware of the challenges she faces, as well as her resilience and determination to meet those challenges. I'm confident my financial and personal support are well placed. Investing in her potential and her future wellbeing is a decision I'm grateful to have made."
~ Christine
