We are on a mission to support refugee youth in Rwanda by empowering them through Christian education and life-skills training.
WHAT WE DO
Educate Refugee Youth
We partner with Christian boarding schools in Rwanda to educate refugees through our sponsorship program.
Teach Vocational Trade Skills
We provide vocational training, mentoring and support to high school students and graduates which facilitates employability.
Keep Girls Safe
Girls face victimization and abuse in the camps. We help protect girls by sending them to safe Christian schools.

TOGETHER, WE ARE MAKING A DIFFERENCE!
Now over 750 refugee students are enrolled in safe Christian boarding schools—all because of the outpouring of support from YOU, who believe in making a lasting difference in this world.
But our work is not done.
There are thousands of high school-age youth in need of safety and quality schooling. Impact Hope is prayerfully working hard to extend this opportunity as far as possible!
