Word Made Flesh Rwanda is called to love and serve Jesus among and alongside the most vulnerable in Kigali, Rwanda.

In 1994 Rwanda was torn apart by genocide. In just 100 days nearly one million people were killed in an attempt to completely wipe out the Tutsi population. The result was a country completely devasted socially and economically by war, and a people broken and traumatized by months of violence between friends and neighbors. In the 20 years since, Rwanda has seen unprecedented growth and development as a result of humanitarian aid and reconciliation efforts between the Hutus and Tutsis. However, nearly half of the popuation of this small landlocked country still live in poverty and many children live on the streets.
Word Made Flesh Rwanda is committed to participating in the movement of the Kingdom of God already at work in Kigali, Rwanda and in joining our Rwandan friends and neighbors in a vision of hope for the future of Rwanda. We are currently building friendships with vulnerable women and children in some of the poorer neighborhoods of Kigali..
