every child deserves a
home, hope, & opportunity.
A safe, stable home is the foundation of a healthy and happy childhood.
The Rwandan Orphans Project is a US and UK based charity that provides homeless children, vulnerable children, and their families with education support and social care, including rebuilding families and helping children escape life on the street and finding safe places to call home.
We are able to provide these needs through the donations of individuals like you. The ROP relies on the charity of ordinary citizens and the support of our partners to achieve our goal of providing a safe place for children, free from desperation and the dangers of life on the streets, opportunities for youth and guidance and support for vulnerable people of all ages.
The Rwandan Orphans Project provides support to more than 250 vulnerable children and young people.
At the ROP we believe that every child has potential, regardless of their past. We provide their basic needs of food, shelter and security and help them find an environment where they can laugh, play, make friends and most important of all, attend school. Our hard working social workers conduct assessment interviews with children who need help in order to find out all we can about them – where they are from, if they have any living relatives, any health problems and how much schooling, if any, they have completed. This ensures that we can offer the right kind of support they need to change their lives.
Our mission is to provide street children and vulnerable youth with a home, hope, and opportunities. We reconnect families to create stronger Rwandan communities. We support over 200 children who have been reuinited with their families or placed with reliable foster carers. Once they are settled we continue helping them by paying for tuition and school supplies, or anything else depending on the individual need.
Our team of experienced and motivated social workers are in constant contact with our children and their families, ensuring they are well cared for, healthy, happy, and attending school. They also help solve problems in their homes before they become too much for the child or parents to bear, in order to prevent any children from ending up back on the street.
