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.

Child of the month

Kenny and Kenilla.

OK, so it should read ìchildren.î However, these two are one special package. They are twins.

Kenny and Kenilla were sent to Urukundo Home by family and Gender Exc Sec Gerard Ndatsikira and were accompanied by their grandfather, Kayitare Gaeton. After giving birth, their mother abandoned the children, leaving them with the grandfather.
Their grandfather is in poor health and confined to a wheelchair. He tried his best but could not care for them as they grew older. The social worker in the area brought them to Urukundo.

Pastor Yves visits their grandfather.
We have watched them grow from babies to the P5 students they are today. Kenny and Kenilla are not identical, but there is a resemblance that says they are twins. They have totally different personalities. Kenny is the jokester. Kenilla is serious. Kenny is the student. Kenilla is the caregiver.
Both are a blessing to the Urukundo Home for Children.


Karate winners

Football is not our only sport. We are very proud of our karate team. The team went to its first competition. They were the winners.

We recognize their Master Eugene Iyamuremye. Eugene gives freely of his time every Saturday morning to train the team. Eugene also is doing a good job as our farm manager.

We have many at Urukundo who wears many hats. Thank you, Eugene, for teaching karate at Urukundo along with your duties at the farm.

You are special.
