Rwanda

Rwanda has undergone many problems in the past. Not least of which is the period of genocide killings that even now still cause many people fear and suffering. TEAM HOPE is partnering with people who genuinely care for those who are hurting most. They want to share our vision of helping the children who need our help most.

Together, we’ve already begun to make a difference. Bringing hope to thousands of Children through our Christmas Shoebox Appeal. Also working on school development programmes for all year ‘round help.
