Rwanda, the smallest and most densely populated country in Africa, is also a country recovering from genocide, an uprising that built gradually over many years and erupted in violence in 1994. Close to one million people died in a terrible sequence of events that pitted neighbour against neighbour, split families and tore apart an entire nation. Today there is a new feeling of hope in Rwanda as programs of forgiveness and reconciliation as well as social and economic development are being implemented.
Impact Rwanda was established in 2004 with a vision for Refugees, Orphans, Widows and those that are the most marginalized in society. Their current ministries include Kiziba Refugee Camp, Community Bible Church and Komeza Women.
