Africa New Life exists to transform lives and communities through proclaiming the gospel of Jesus Christ and acts of compassion.
Here’s how Africa New Life works in Rwanda:
SPONSORSHIP: Africa New Life sponsors support nearly four thousand children through high school. Each child in the sponsorship program receives a pair of shoes, a school uniform, books, school supplies, and a basic medical insurance plan. Each child also attends our bimonthly Christian day camp and a four-day Bible camp each year. Ninety percent of child sponsorship funds go directly to the child sponsorship program in Rwanda.
PUBLIC SCHOOLS: The Rwandan government has shown its support and trust for Africa New Life by asking us to manage two public schools. These schools, in the communities of Kageyo and Bugesera, now give hundreds of the nation’s poorest children the chance for an education.
TRAINING FOR WOMEN: Each year, 70 women are trained through Africa New Life Ministries’ vocational training program in tailoring through the New Life Family Center. These women come from a variety of challenging life experiences: many are HIV-positive, single mothers, windowed, in abusive situations (or emerging from them), and often poor. The vocational training program offers these vulnerable women the opportunity to learn tailoring, a vital skill offering a future of employment and the chance to escape poverty.
PASTOR EDUCATION: In 2012 Africa New Life Ministries will launch Africa College of Theology, providing college-level training for current and future pastors. These pastors will primarily be supported through the generous support of churches and individuals in the States.
STREET CHILDREN: Africa New Life provides school-age boys and young men the opportunity to get off the streets and back into the classroom. By sharing the gospel and providing ongoing discipleship and mentoring, Africa New Life helps ensure a successful transition back into traditional and vocational schooling.
MISSIONS: Each year hundreds of people visit and serve the people of Rwanda with an Africa New Life mission team. Many churches who partner with Africa New Life send outreach teams to Rwanda to see new life for themselves.
