    Striving to rebuild families for the benefit of the children and nation

Because every child deserves care, love and hope.

The ROP is an orphanage and a center for street children located just outside of Kigali, Rwanda. We provide housing, clothing, food, health care, education and many other needs to nearly 100 vulnerable children from around Rwanda. We are able to provide these needs solely through the donations of individuals like you. The ROP has no corporate or foundational support and relies on the charity of ordinary citizens to achieve our goal of providing a safe place for children, free from desperation and the dangers of life on the streets.

At the ROP

We believe that education is our children's
best hope of escaping the strong grip of
poverty. Because of this all of our children
are either enrolled in our in-house catch-up
school or go to secondary or vocational
schools around Rwanda. We feel all children,
regardless of the hardships they may have
endured in the past, deserve a chance to
make something of themselves.
