Building a home for orphans is hard work. Times are tough and people give what they can. Fortunately, it doesn’t take much in many parts of the world to make a real difference.

Last year, I traveled to Rwanda and helped build the fence we funded around the first three homes of the Children’s Village. Our part was small, we did what we could. Many others before us donated time, talent and money to build the three buildings and furnish them.  We did what we could and sent money for a fence to provide security and safety for the staff and children. We can’t do it all, but we can all do something.

I had lunch yesterday with Floriane Brown, executive director, and got the great news that Nibakure Children’s Village took in their first orphans this week. Floriane Brown is staying true to her vision, providing a home and a future for orphans being cared for by widows on staff.  Slowly, slowly, step by step,  her dream is coming true.

Meet the first children and their care taker.

Meet the ones this work is all about.

Thank you for your part in making dreams come true.
