Since 2001, Africa New Life has been dedicated to seeing lives transformed through meeting basic needs of those in Rwanda living in poverty and sharing the freedom and hope found in Christ. At the heart of their model for breaking cycles of poverty is educational sponsorship. With a high school education, or a vocational equivalent, children in Rwanda have hope for the future. As of 2017, these are just a few of their achievements:
- More than 8,000 children are now sponsored through Africa New Life, receiving education and spiritual nurturing through sponsorship by friends in Rwanda, the U.S., the U.K., Canada, and Northern Ireland.
- More than 140 post-secondary or university students in college and vocational programs around the world.
- Over 500 individuals per year are taking advantage of TOEFEL and English classes, CPA training, the college discipleship program, and leadership/training partnerships with partnering ministries and organizations.
