Africa New Life - Sponsorship


At Africa New Life, we believe that access to education is the key to helping children break out of poverty. For that reason, educational sponsorship is the heart of our ministry. Today, 11,000 students are sponsored across Rwanda and pursuing the education that will free them and their families to thrive! Their sponsorship means they can attend school consistently and are equipped with the materials and support needed to succeed.

By sponsoring a child with Africa New Life, you help to break the cycle of poverty in Rwanda and free a child to dream.

Sponsorship helps families by assisting them with school fees, which allows them to use their income to pay for other expenses while feeling confident that their child will get the education needed to pursue a stable life free of poverty in the long-run. Sponsored students receive a school uniform and scholastic materials, have access to basic medical care through our community nurses, get to participate in Christian camps and other discipleship opportunities with their peers, and are surrounded by local community leaders, teachers, pastors, and child welfare officers who genuinely care about and notice their needs.

When you become a sponsor, you have the opportunity to play an important role in a student’s educational and spiritual journey. We desire for all sponsors to build relationships with their sponsored students through writing letters, ordering gifts, or even traveling to Rwanda. We hope the impact of sponsorship stretches far beyond the borders of Rwanda, to your heart, your family, and your community.
