This proud community of Bugesera is doing well with their Micro finance project. Thank you to everyone who donated money towards the goats! Why Micro finance? It creates economic sustainability and self-reliance for the people in Bugesera District hashtag#Rwanda. It allows people to earn their living through informal markets and self-employment by creating and operating their own small enterprises. Financial services can empower individuals economically and socially by allowing them to better manage their lives. It can also help them to better integrate into a country’s economy by actively contributing to economic growth while giving them a stake in their communities.
Miracles happen and only Maria from Bugesera can say that at this time of the year! She was practically homeless...a dollar or so a month for her one bedroom rent living with her 3 children.
She touched our hearts the first time we laidy eyes on her and thanks to Pam and Blair who continued to follow up on her she now just got a key to her own home today as a Christmas gift. Thank you to all who got involved in helping Maria find meaning to her life again. God bless.
She is proudly standing in the front of the house Shelter Them built for her and her family. This is what we do...relieve poverty and give future to vulnerable families like hers. What a great Christmas present!
Shelter Them takes children from poverty and gives them a better future. This 9 year old girl looks after her two younger siblings when their mom is out working to survive. A big thanks to our generous donors which help us change lives
From the streets, homeless and hopeless life in 2016 to becoming #1 & 2 in their class. Thanks to their sponsors Felistien and Yohana now have a safe home and everything they need
Great to see Elie at the restaurant where he is doing his internship as he studies to become a chef. Elie came to Shelter Them when he was a young boy and now he is now a young man. He was with his siblings alone because his mother died giving birth, we have given him this chance to do something with the life God gave him.
A 103 beautiful grandma got her home built by Shelter Them in Bugesera. She said that she has never slept on a mattress and she feels that she will be floating with joy while at sleep
Shelter Them volunteers gives a little girl a doll and brightened her day. She now has a home and everything else she and her family needs. Thank you for donating the dolls, they love them!
Great Country Singer-Songwriter and very compassionate human being! It is with pleasure to have Blair S Lane S Lane and Pamela C Lane join hashtag#Shelterthem mission trip 2018: Capturing the hearts of Country Music fans everywhere, with gripping lyrics and soaring melodies his music emotionally connects making you an instant fan.
Music written at home and recorded mainly in Nashville alongside long-time co-conspirator/producer Peter Daniel Newman and ace Music City session hands who’ve recorded with everyone from Tim McGraw and Brad Paisley to Keith Urban, Only One and When Life Gets In The Way of Living neatly chart Lane’s songwriting evolution. The recordings also point, compass-like, towards what’s next.
