A Note for New Readers

Urukundo Village is an independent home for Rwandan children created and funded through Hope Made Real and its incredibly kind donors. We are not funded by any particular denomination or organization and welcome all who seek to help the children of Rwanda and create a better world not just for a child, but for us all.

The children from the community also celebrated at Urukundo. More than 500 children crowded into Hope House.

It was awesome. The house could not contain them all.

Jacob gets a Benjiman Suit

For those not in the know: When you ask Jacob what he wants to be when he grows up, his answer is: “I want to be Benjiman.”
Benjiman is his idol and the maintenance person at Urukundo. He solves odd job problems, builds and is the father image for our boys. Jacob could not pick a better person to emulate.
The suit was given to him for Christmas by Bob and Amy Dove. It is a replica of the suit Benjiman wears as he does his job here at Urukundo. Jacob is his shadow. Wherever Benjiman is working, there is Jacob.


Visitor for December

His name is Kevin This is what he has to say:
“I am Ngobo Kevin Castle from the North province of Musanze District, Rwanda. I am a volunteer at Urukundo Foundation, but now I feel like I am family already.
“I love the kids and people here.”
