WHO WE ARE

We are optimistic dreamers who believe no child should have to experience homelessness.
With partnerships that span the globe, Hope for Life is a small, but mighty grassroots organization made up of hardworking and passionate people. As two organizations legally registered in their home countries, the Rwandan team delivers transformative programs while the team in the US supports through fundraising and communications.

MISSION

Providing youth with holistic, family-centered, and trauma-informed interventions to escape homelessness and achieve a flourishing future.

VISION

Youth empowered to escape homelessness and holistically thrive.

OUR STORY

Hope for Life was born out of a collaboration and friendship between four Rwandan and American women in 2009 who desperately wanted to see children move off the streets.
Today, that collaboration continues with a focus on local Rwandan leadership and holistic interventions.
In 2010, Hope for Life Ministry became a registered nongovernmental organization in Rwanda, and in 2017, Hope for Life became a 501(c)3 nonprofit in the US.
