To all those people who donated to the Street Kids of Rwanda.. we couldn't have done it without you! Thank you for your support!

I just wanted to share a little video with you - this is a very short summary of the trip there in March to visit the kids. There will be another video coming with more information about the Street Kids of Rwanda which includes some interviews, but it is still a work in progress.

Enjoy this for now.. you'll need the volume turned up. :)

Thanks, Julie

(former fundraising page for our trip in March 2013)

The Street Kids of Rwanda are a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting the welfare of Rwandan street children by providing housing, food and education. Their goal is to enable children to grow into self-sufficient adults who can help others by becoming leaders and productive members of their communities. They began in 2002, when Antoine Bizimana, a mechanic and former street kid, began offering care to street children. Eventually they were able to build the Kimisagara Centre (an orphanage) in Kigali, Rwanda which houses 105 children. This is not a government supported centre – the money primarily comes from Antoine’s mechanic shop, which he uses to support all the children. While Street Kids of Rwanda has improved the lives of many children, their resources are limited and the children have many needs.
