Reach the Children of Rwanda International
Reach the Children of Rwanda International (RCRI) is a Christian 501(c)3 non-profit humanitarian organization recognized by both the United States and Rwanda. With offices in Due West, South Carolina and Kigali, Rwanda, RCRI currently serves over 400 children between the ages of 4 and 21, along with their families. RCRI works in the three districts of Kigali City and in the Nyabihu District of the Western Province of Rwanda. RCRI believes that a solid education and a Christ-centered spiritual foundation are the keys to breaking the cycle of poverty and training children to be self-sufficient contributors to Rwandan society. This is accomplished by providing the means for education as well as addressing the spiritual, emotional, and physical needs of each child and their family outside of the classroom. RCRI employs a holistic model”“assessing and ministering to the needs of the whole of a child”™s life and not just one aspect.
RCRI has begun construction and opened a school in Nyabihu District, in which upon completion all RCRI-supported children will live and study.
Hope for the Fatherless
Hope for the Fatherless is an organization that focuses on giving intensive love, care and high standard education and training opportunities to orphaned children, between the ages six to ten, and so desire to impart living hope in Christ. Additionally, they believe and hope to see the culture in Ethiopia transformed to care for the fatherless, the weak, and the vulnerable. This vision was primarily conceived after observing the living conditions of needy children who live in destitution or orphanages, and recognizing their learning abilities. It is believed that if today”™s children are well educated, trained and mentored in every aspect of their life, they will become a generation of tomorrow”™s great citizens.
As the Lord prompts
The Dunlap Foundation provides two giving options for those whom the Lord prompts: giving to the Foundation as a whole, from which our various ministries are funded, and to the Adoption Assistance Fund. Please prayerfully consider giving to one or both of these funds!
