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

Nyungwe Forest.

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:

1/9

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

1/8

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!
