Project Launch:

With $500 grant from World Connect’s Kids to Kids Program in 2010, Hope House expanded into an interactive space for all ages where children from the home and the community can now come to learn through play, reading, teaching, and art. The expansion provides children with a richer environment to play and learn in and provides older children with a more functional and educational room for studying. The secondary school children helped paint the walls of Hope House with educational material: a world map, the alphabet, numbers, colors, animals, foods, and other symbols in both English and Kinyarwanda. This project marked a first step in a bigger project of establishing Urukundo as both a home for abandoned and orphaned children and a school system for the wider community.
