But our work is not done. There are thousands of high school age children in need of safety and quality schooling. Impact Hope is prayerfully working hard to extend this opportunity as far as possible!
The Story of Impact Hope
After learning more about the dire refugee situation in Rwanda, and that many Christian areas were also under this continuing poverty and persecution, we rallied to assist in relief efforts. We found that high school education was a way out for many of these refugee families, so Impact Hope formed to sponsor and support refugee students to attend Christian boarding schools Rwanda.

My name is Joy Uwase. I am 18 years old and a refugee. I live in Gihembe Camp and that is also where I was born. In my family we are five children and I am the first born. We have two girls and three boys.
When I was two years old, my father left us and went far away. Until now, we don’t know where he is. At that time, my mother had two children, me and my younger sister. After my father left my mother started struggling for getting food. Since we were refugees, my mother didn’t have a job where she could get money for satisfying our needs.
