Volunteer in Rwanda
Currently opportunities are open in line with children, and their communities, through our partner organizations in Rwanda. Since the genocide (1994), Rwanda has been working to climb out of the shadow of the past. Rwanda has mostly passed the point of needing emergency aid, but the genocide will have long lasting consequences, such as poverty and HIV/AIDS, for years to come, and there is much work to be done. Volunteers will assist our partner organization’s to facilitate processes to help eradicate poverty, reduce HIV infections, and help communities in capacity building programs. Volunteers from all backgrounds are encouraged to volunteer
Welcome to Le Pays des Milles Collines (Land of a Thousand Hills). Rwanda is a lush country of endless mountains and stunning scenery and nowhere are the mountains more majestic than the peaks of the Virunga volcanoes in the far Northwestern Rwanda. There’s more to Rwanda than magical mountain gorillas, however. The shores of Lake Kivu conceal some of the best inland beaches on the continent. Deep in the southwest, Parc National Nyungwe Forest is the most extensive montane rainforest in the region, and home to many primates. But it’s not all monkey business – Kigali is safe and sophisticated. Many visitors are unsure about traveling to Rwanda given its history. However, as long as security and stability persist, Rwanda is a refreshing country in which to travel, where tourists remain a relative novelty and the rewards of the present outweigh the risks of the past.
