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, 10,500 students are sponsored across Rwanda. Their sponsorship means they can attend school consistently and are equipped with the materials and support needed to succeed. By sponsoring a child, you help to break the cycle of poverty in Rwanda.

You free a child to dream.

Africa New Life has two top-priority goals for each child we work with: to help them complete high school or a vocational equivalent and to bring them into a loving relationship with and knowledge of Christ. We accomplish these goals through a variety of programs and ministry areas. Educational sponsorship is the first step.

Sponsorship helps families by assisting them with school fees, which allows them to pay for other expenses. Sponsored students receive a school uniform and scholastic materials. They are encouraged to attend monthly Center Days, where they enjoy a meal, play games, and hear about Christ, as well as an annual Christian camp. Sponsorship, additionally covers basic medical needs that fall outside of government-sponsored insurance, so sponsored students have a greater access to health care. By coming alongside a student and their family through sponsorship and prayer, you help transform lives in an entire community.

The resources that child sponsorship covers

As 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.
