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.

December 2017 Newsletter

Closing out the Year 2017 and Welcoming the Year 2018 is a big event

Birthdays at any age are special events. At my age, they are treasured. Such a blessing to have Bruce Krogh and Bob and Amy Dove celebrating with me.


Bible Sunday

The first Sunday in December was designated Bible Sunday at our worship service. A Bible was presented to each child entering Primary 6 in January 2018.

The children could choose Kinyarwanda or English Bibles.Those from our school chose English. Those in our congregation from other schools chose a Bible written in their native tongue.After the worship service, the children were invited to have lunch with Urukundo kids..


A Joyous Event

No, this is not the arrival of a newborn baby but instead is the arrival in Rwanda of Chanel Moore, my very first great-grandchild.
Chanel is the fourth generation of terrific women in my family, including me, my daughter Barbara Downs and my granddaughter Beckie Starr.
This is Chanel's first visit to Africa. She is working on her master’s degree at West Chester State University in Pennsylvania, USA.
I’m so happy that you are here, Chanel.

Love the hats.


Staff Celebration

Forty-two staff members have children under the age of 12. At last count, 85 children under 12 received gifts. All children of staff members – older and younger ones – as well as spouses joined us for a movie, sumbosa and juice on the Friday before Christmas. Gifts aplenty.

Community Children's Party

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.
