sharing practical love


The exquisite “Ladies of Hope,” the students of Kelly Drader Longview Training Centre in Kigali, have graduated! Though nervous about being paraded before their family and friends, their joy was palpable!

Having completed their 10-month program that includes tailoring and embroidery skills, counselling, business training, and life skills, hope has been restored! These lovely ladies have endured much trauma and loss in their lives, but today marks a wondrous gain! Their futures and the futures of their children look so much brighter today.

And these sweet ladies did not claim all the glory. They lavished HOPE’s Dream Team, their teachers and fellow students with words of gratitude and thank you gifts. They are so appreciative for their contribution to their growth!

Thank you to our partners for their support! National Rehabilitation Services of Rwanda, Duhumurizanye Iwacu Rwanda, Love and Hands, and all of you HOPE supports … the success of these graduates is also your success. Turikumwe. Hobe cyane!

It is hard to believe that these lovely ladies have been studying with us almost a full year! ... and that they are graduating in a couple of weeks! As you can see from the creations they designed and made, they have worked hard to become very accomplished ... and they had fun doing it! We are all so proud of them!

It is with great joy that Hopethiopia/Rwanda (HOPE) welcomes 30 new men to HOPE Home in Gahanga, Kicukiro. Having successfully completed a one-year program at Iwawa Rehabilitation Centre, these young men are full or hope and promise. HOPE is thrilled to receive this, its 10th group of graduates from IRC and are eager to see them not merely reintegrated into society but fully engaged as Rwandan citizens.

With the addition of these young men to the HOPE Family, there have been more than 350 residents come through our home. These young men are hard-working men of character. We are excited to see them established in the community, finding jobs, and building families of their own, as many of our previous residents can boast.

HOPE is so very grateful for its supportive partners: Rwanda’s National Rehabilitation Services, Kicukiro District, Duhumurizanye Iwacu Rwanda, Rwanda Governance Board and the Ministry of Local Government. Thank you for your continued support. Turikumwe!
