Help 100’s of poor rural mothers in Rwanda dying from HIV and leaving orphans. They are shunned by society but need work to live. They need food so they can take their medication.
They asked us to build a sewing cooperative so that they can work together to earn and support their families.
Help us to build a well for the village. Go to our Rwandan projects page to learn more.
