Here we have some of the happiest kids around. They are newly sponsored and starting school. Why not help us by sponsoring a child and giving children like these a chance at success
Here we have a young boy we met and asked what he was doing. He said he was making a replica of his home and yard. He pointed out the chicken coop, shed, well and home with rooms. We would love to see him be an architect as much as he wants to be one. It is through sponsorship that you can help him meet his future
It's amazing to see what is possible in children's life if you give them a chance
From HOPELESS & HOMELESS to being # 1 in the Country.
Here is Zephelin speaking from his heart !
A letter of THANKS
I am a 42 years old man. I live with my three sons and my wife. We are well because one day Shelter Them completely changed my life. Shelter Them found me in a miserable situation. Since my birth I have not seen anyone who came to my help even after I had an eye disease that made me blind. But Shelter Them helped me get food, my kids go to school without any problem. Shelter Them has given me a land where I can grow corn and beans. These kind-hearted people helped me with an eye medical treatment, even though it did not work out they did everything they could. I thank all with all my heart for the volunteers of shelter them, they spend all their time taking care of us, they give us advice that help us overcome our problems in life and help us to find suitable solutions. The house they built for me is far more beautiful than I could have imagined in my life, it looks like one of Executive Secretary of our Sector. I lack words to describe the goodness of this organization, but may God bless the works of their hands, we will keep praying for them.
All we can say is WOW! They look good and the farm is looking very good! Here is a letter she wrote for us
FRANCINE's THANK YOU STORY
Before shelter them helped us, I lived in a deplorable situation, without hope that someone will come to rescue me. My children had dropped out of school, I did not even have enough food to feed my family. When Shelter Them came, they asked me what I needed. I asked them to help my children so that they could go back to school. I also begged them to help me provide food because hunger in the children hurt me a lot. Shelter Them immediately intervened and answered all my requests. Even if the problem that weighed heavily on me was diminished, I had one thing left: an old house that was in very bad condition. When the rain fell, we would gather in one place and be afraid that it would fall on us. But without even asking, shelter them built me new house. I am without words, I thank Shelter Them with all my heart, they gave me everything I could not get any day.
The Rwandan team put on a wonderful party for the children. Good food, music, dancing and presents were all a part of it. We are so proud of our kids and hope this little party can give them a boost for the New Year
Here is the 2017 Shelter Them FC. To these boys ball is life and their passion shines through when they play
We came across this cute little story we shared a couple years ago. A supporter asked us what the girls would like to have. So we asked and to our surprise they all said ``WORK OUT WEAR!``
We were not expecting that, so we relayed the message and cost and this supporter sent enough money to buy these girls some workout wear
Everytime a team visits Rwanda, we try to raise money for certain things. One time was soccer balls and equipment for the older boys to play in tournaments. Below is a picture with the thank-you note for each donor.
