FAMILIES FOR FAMILIES
SUPPORTING FAMILIES CREATES GENERATIONAL IMPACT.
While educational sponsorship is at the heart of Africa New Life’s work, we understand it takes a thriving community to truly transform the lives of young people in a way that empowers them to carve a path out of poverty. We want this transformation to be long-lasting, creating a stable life for future generations. Families like yours who come alongside Rwandan families through sponsorship are essential to this future-focused vision!
Your family can open the door to help another family enjoy a strengthened relationship with Christ, have access to better nutrition, and experience the peace and confidence of knowing that their children and their community as a whole will experience a more secure future.
When your family equips a student to thrive through sponsorship, you will have a front seat view of the good things God has in store for entire families and generations to come!
Come alongside a family in Rwanda by sponsoring a waiting student today!
“A sponsor would help me to put my child in school. Education means my child will live a better life than mine.”
—Josephine, mother of seven
Seven-year-old Isimbi dreams of becoming a doctor someday. She is one of five children provided for by a single mother, Josephine.
At 32 years old, Josephine finds part-time jobs where she can to provide for her children. When that fails, she sells products at the local market. But the income she can glean from these efforts is never quite enough to cover all the family’s needs, including school fees. For this reason, Dorcas has never yet been able to attend school. Josephine feels like she’s failed her daughter in this area.
“It’s hard getting my child to school. A sponsor would help me to put my child in school. Education means my child will live a better life than mine.”
Isimbi knows that to pursue her dreams, she needs consistent access to school first.
“I need a sponsor so I can go to school.”
In Rwandan culture, when one family flourishes, they reach out to help their neighbors. We have seen, time and time again, that when families are given the tools to improve their own circumstances, they then make a difference within their communities in more ways than we could have imagined. For this reason, each Africa New Life community includes, among other supports, a church plant with a biblically-trained pastor, a Child Welfare Officer and local sponsorship staff, and access to a caring community nurse. In Rwanda, churches are the heart of a community, and church staff in Rwanda are actively connected to their local community members’ needs, specifically those struggling with sickness or poverty. This is just one example of how sponsorship supports not just students but also their families and communities.
