You can allow a student living in a refugee camp to escape these conditions and attend boarding school!
Impact Hope – 2017 Update
Together we’re making a difference in the lives of refugees! Now over 350 refugee students are enrolled in safe 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 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 Seventh-day Adventist 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 Adventist boarding schools Rwanda.
