"I am called KAMAGAJU Francoise, I live with my two children, we are so happy because we are helped by GIFTS Rwanda. We get food and health insurance; I got a goat and rabbits and my life is changing due to the help from GIFTS Rwanda. "
Did you know you can buy a family a goat ($60) or rabbits ($54 for 3)? Each animal provides a living, nutrition, and meat for that family. You can provide this for a family with a one time donation, or a monthly donation to go towards the purchase. Learn more about our many animal projects and how you can donate here.
It is exciting to see our projects at work changing lives every day. It's people like you that are helping the people in Rugarika make these real sustainable changes, and it couldn't be done without you. THANK YOU for being a part of our team!

"My name is NIYONSHUTI Jonas, I am widower. I lost my wife and she left me children and a small baby, I was obliged to take care of them but I was not able to get everything for my family. Now I am happy and my heart is happy to have got a help from GIFTS Rwanda and my daughter Anitha who helps me to take care of the small baby gets school fees and she is going to continue studying. I will always pray for people of good heart because GIFTS Rwanda is giving me what I have never thought about. Thank you very much GIFTS Rwanda."
GIFTS Rwanda was able to send 32 children to school this school year, including Jonas daughter Anitha. Our goal is to increase this number for next school year. Please help support more children's dreams of an education by giving here.
We feel so blessed and thankful to be a part of these beautiful Rwandan peoples' lives. An extra special shout out to our Rwandan superstars, Paterne and Brigitte and their wonderful and endless energy and work for their people.

I would like to introduce you to some of the people you serve. These people are some of the most inspiring you'd ever want to meet. Their stories of integrity, courage, faith, and perseverance are examples for us all. Meet them below...
"I am an old woman and I am poor. I met good people and they are helping me. I live with my grandchildren; children of my daughter. She married a man and they had five children. Because of familial misunderstanding her husband killed her and he is jailed. I decided to live with my grandchildren even though we are poor. We lived a difficult live but now things have changed as I am helped by God who sent me GIFTS Rwanda."
"I am 24 years old, I am a policeman. I come from a poor family that could not pay my school fees and I had no hope to continue my studies. I met GIFTS Rwanda and it helped me and I returned to school and they paid my school fees. I finished my secondary studies in 2019 and I decided to be a policeman as I liked this. I thank a lot GIFTS Rwanda the way it helps poor people and I will always pray for GIFTS Rwanda."
