It is estimated that in Kigali, Rwanda’s capital, 7,000 children live on the streets. These children – mostly boys who are orphaned, poor or too old to return to school – go to the streets looking for food, for water, for a better life.
It’s no secret that I adore Africa New Life. (Remember how I always travel to Rwanda to check on these precious faces?) The organization has a program dedicated to a group of young men known as the Dream Boys. Through the program, these boys are tutored in reading, English, math and social studies. They also receive Biblical training.
This is a video that my friend Betty (who currently works as a missionary for Africa New Life) took of the young boys who just graduated from the program and are eligible for sponsorship. I dare you not to be infected by the sheer JOY from all involved.
If you are interested in sponsoring a Dream Boy, I would love to tell you more about the program and connect you with the right people. Or you can click HERE to see their sweet, hopeful faces!
