Foundation Rwanda's Mission

  1. Provide education for children born from rapes committed during the 1994 genocide
  2. Link their mothers to medical and psychological support and income generating activities
  3. Raise awareness about the consequences of genocide and sexual violence through photography and new media

An estimated 20,000 children were born of rapes committed during the 1994 genocide in Rwanda. The mothers of these children -- many of whom contracted the HIV/AIDS virus from those brutal encounters have largely been shunned by their society because of the stigma of rape and rejected by their families. Forced into poverty, they are unable to pay the annual fee for their children to attend secondary school or to provide the necessary uniforms, shoes, books and scholastic materials, and transportation. Currently, there are no governmental or private NGO programs dedicated solely to support and provide funds for education for children born from rape during the genocide. Foundation Rwanda identifies the holistic needs of these families and provides them with the funds and support they desperately need.
