Sponsor a Child
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 and do everything we can to provide an environment in which they can grow and prosper. Our sponsorship program is holistic and it funds the full needs of the child. We don’t just keep a child in school, we also provide the emotional and psychosocial support he/she requires and we reach deeper into the family life to address and support their needs, which ultimately improves everyone’s lives.
How It Works
In the urban settings of Rwanda, at-risk and vulnerable boys and girls face unique daily challenges. The children suffer from a lack of positive role models, certain health-related complications, and they require academic and emotional support. This program creates a sustainable and dependable pathway for the child, which will in turn incubate their development from child through adulthood! Hope Shines invests in the lives of the most in need young children ages 7 years old and up. Your support is a lifeline to better opportunities for a child, one of which may not exist otherwise. Here is how it works.
