What a great Life transformation for Aisha and her kids. From very poor and hopeless to now seeing a future. Shelter Them is so proud to be able to do this and we thank our donors for all their help!
We are so excited to have our 13 th annual Fundraising Gala in Brampton on May 4. Buy you tickets here and join us for a great night of fun, food, dance and hear some amazing things that have been happening for Shelter Them in Rwanda
What Shelter Them Ambassadors Alice A is saying after visiting our children in Rwanda.
“ I don’t even know how to summarize my time with Shelter Them. And I am a bit biased because I already had a relationship with the organization prior to this trip but, let me just say this: What started as a meal service to street kids after church is becoming a trailblazer in: 1) Providing a home to abandoned or orphaned children 2) Supporting families living in extreme poverty 3) Opening an early childhood education program 4) Empowering caregivers with skills to raise the kids in a loving environment 5) Education! Éducation! Education! Aaaaaaand, Don’t even get me started on the Bugesera project!. I’ll probably sit with its founders, the twins Josephine & Jocelyne someday to tell you more! It was an absolute honour to have spent the last few days with an incredibly compassionate team, courageous caregivers and children full of hope for the future! Stay tuned. You will definitely hear about Shelter Them - Batarure soon”
Check out how people are changing life through recycling. Thank you David Jenkins for your work in Newfoundland Shelter Them invites you to recycle and change the lives of children at the same time. By recycling for Shelter Them you will also receive a tax receipt at the end of the year. It's simple to do: just drop off your recyclables at the Carbonear GreenDepot, tell them it's for Shelter Them Carbonear and then message me the day you drop your items off. No need for you to wait in any lineup... I will get an email from the depot stating how much your donation was and will issue you a receipt at the end of the year. Hope to hear from you.
What a change and encouragement to see Donata doing so much better since joining Shelter Them. Her kids look amazing too!
A hug of Hope
Love can be shared in many ways, especially to kids. A hug and a hope giving word!
All our children after their Christmas party! Imagine this many children have been given a chance to make their future because of you help. Thank you
Only few years ago since these boys were found at birth from the streets or abandoned and NOW to seeing them with a smile, growing strong and becoming successful. David Jenkins has done an amazing job with the Shelter Them sponsorship program. A big Thank You to Grandpa Jenkins for all his commitment and love to the work. We are so proud of what Shelter Them is doing
These kids are from one of the poorest regions of Bugesera. We built homes, provided them with food give them education. Today some of these kids are the best in their classes and in their district. Nelson Mandela once said: Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.
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.
