Be One Transformed
At Hope Haven Rwanda, we promote a culture of love and respect within our staff, faculty, students and the families that we serve. This is a critical part of our mission to transform Rwandan families through a holistic approach to education and discipleship.
Each year hundreds of people travel to Rwanda and experience the transformation that is happening firsthand, and to be the hands and feet of Jesus, demonstrating His love in Rwanda.
As God uses you to serve others, you will be transformed as well!

Activities and Projects
The goal is service, and there are many ways that we serve together.
Volunteers work alongside staff and teachers to creatively develop programs or projects that will impact and involve the local Rwandans even after they leave. Here are some of the projects and activities which are part of most trips to Hope Haven Rwanda:
School is the primary platform for ministry at Hope Haven Rwanda. Interns will be assigned to one of our classrooms to connect with one team of teachers and 45 students. Approximately two hours each day will be spent serving in the classroom alongside our teachers, and will include building relationships, teaching, games, puzzles and mentoring opportunities. Recess time will also be spent interacting with the students. There is also plenty of opportunity for relational ministry based around VBS programs, games, sports, Bible studies, and one-on-one discipleship and field trips.
Service projects, home rebuilds, water access projects, community-wide worship events, children’s day camps, training on nutrition, hygiene, etc.
As a large Christian school, we have many opportunities for Bible teaching each week. Weekly chapel services with 650 students participating, Bible classes, faculty and staff Bible studies and monthly community outreach events all provide ample opportunity for interns and volunteers to share testimonies or teach lessons.
Walk to Kabuga Market, hike to the neighborhood well, where many of the locals fetch water each day, shop in Murindi market.
Visit the Kigali Genocide Memorial, a place for remembering and learning, Church on Sundays in Kigali, explore the city of Kigali.
Shop at Kimironko Market, the largest market in Kigali, sample interesting local restaurants and other tourist attractions.
Visitors often schedule an African safari in eastern Rwanda, alongside the Tanzanian border. Giraffe, elephants, zebra, baboons, hippos and lions are just a few of the exotic animals native to this area. Remember to bring your camera and binoculars!
