Challenge

Rwanda is striving to renew itself in the traumatic wake of its devastating genocide and the challenges posed by debilitating poverty and HIV/AIDS. The Agahozo Shalom Youth Village (ASYV) addresses critical needs in Rwanda through innovative educational methodologies that heal and nurture, creating a cadre of Rwandan youth who have the skills and passion to rebuild their lives and effect real change in their own communities, country, and beyond.

Solution

Communal involvement will cultivate a strong sense of self and of social justice. The medical clinic will tend to their physical wellbeing. The high-quality high school will provide the springboard to shape their futures and that of their country.

Long-Term Impact

ASYV is a development project that serves as an agent of change in a devastated country by bringing innovative approaches and expertise to Rwanda in a variety of fields and through healing, educating and empowering 500 orphans each year.
