Known as the "land of a thousand hills', Rwanda is a lovely country dotted with  green landscapes made up of volcanic mountains, high and low altitude forests, expansive savannah and  beautiful lakeside beaches. Rwanda is also home to the world-famous mountain gorillas.

Volunteers have many opportunities, for tourism, on their free days.  These include visiting mountain gorillas in the Virunga National Park, safari in Akagera National Park, visiting the beautiful Lake Kivu on the western edge of the country, or learning about local culture and history at the National Museum in Huye.  Extending a trip to visit neighboring countries such as Uganda or Tanzania is also very easy.

This volunteer program supports pre-school & primary school classes, as well as youth in vocational training school. The programs are committed to protecting the human rights of children in Rwanda, eradicating any form of child labor and offering even the most disadvantaged child the chance of a good education. Come volunteer in Rwanda and work with children and youth in a village school. The school offering these children an opportunity to grow and learn, and possibly a chance at a better like.
