Rwandan Orphans Project
Rwandan Orphans Project (ROP) has grown into one of the most respected and admirable institutions for street children, not only in the country, but in the region. Their approach is a holistic one, that not only provides a safe home and education for street children, but counseling, family tracing, and often reintegration back into their communities. On top of that, ROP has developed a school at their center and provides free education to children in the host community where their center is based.

Thanks to your support 2019 has been another incredible year of helping children and vulnerable families all over Rwanda. We started an exciting new school lunch program, opened our new, unique and environmentally friendly eco-toilets, and continued growing and improving to help more children than ever before!
As we reach the end of this successful year we want to share our achievements with you, our partners, donors and friends. And, as Christmas nears and 2020 approaches, we ask that you consider making a donation towards our holiday celebrations or towards our children’s programs for the coming year.
In 2019 we increased the number of vulnerable girls receiving our support, including nearly doubling the number of former street girls at our Imizi Girls Home. We also added 10 new high school scholarships for vulnerable girls who completed elementary school with us but whose parents cannot afford to pay high school tuition, In addition we added two vocational training scholarships for girls who prefer learning a trade. In total we provided 90 girls with some form of support this year, the most ever for ROP.
