Let's Help Shape a World
that Vulnerable Youth Deserve!
We grew up in rural Rwanda. As kids, we
lived in poverty and experienced genocide.
We remember the challenges that we faced as vulnerable youth. But we came to know our strength and potential. So we created
Rungano-Ndota Initiative (RNI) for today’s youth!
We accept our responsibility to contribute back to the community that raised us, to help bring vulnerable young Rwandans forward
to lives of hope.
Rungano-Ndota's story started in the
Rungano-Ndota means “a dream generation.”
We started building this generation in 2017 in our community, Ruhango District.
Here’s what our youth say about their experience in Rungano-Ndota:
Rungano-Ndota shapes a world for us that:
Welcomes us in a loving family with friendship, joy, respect and trust
Listens to our voices, experiences, and opinions
Cares about our dreams and helps us achieve them
Believes we can contribute as community leaders
Guides us to develop our talents and livelihoods
In that world we:
Build confidence and become positive catalysts for others
Earn money and have hope for a better life
Create jobs and employ others
Are respected like other Rwandans who build a positive future
Become part of “a dream generation” for our country!
Together we are shaping our world!
I see young people who did not have a future, who had a kind of trauma because of the hard life they passed through when they were young. Now they are smiling.
They are fighting for their tomorrows.
Oh my God, that makes me proud!
