Read the stories

“On the street we struggled to eat, but now I am happy because there’s food at home, I have good  clothes, and my life has become very good. I go to school and  study hard so I can become a pilot in the future.”

“Truly, life has dramatically changed for these children. Their lives on the streets were at risk of all kinds of   dangerous threats. They experienced abuse, homelessness, hunger and loneliness. Today they are all in school, have a home and are full of hope and purpose.”

“My name has changed from a street child to a child like others. I am no longer abused, I have a good home, I am not hungry anymore, and more important to me is that I am in school, and I know that my future will be good.”

“Going on for days without food used to be the norm before the start of this project. Today all the necessary needs for the children are met and what is most important to me is to see how all of this has affected their outlook on life, and has birthed in them  confidence and hope.”

It has changed me forever

“My first ever trip to Rwanda was in the Summer of 2015.

I had no idea what to expect, and even if I had, nothing could have prepared me for what I experienced!

The privilege of meeting the street kids was incredible, and the fact I was able to be a part of helping to create a home for the Batsinda boys was something I will never forget.

I was honoured to be able to show love to them, understand them, and see the world through their eyes. It has changed me forever.”

God is blessing this work

“On visiting the Batsinda project during the summer of 2015, I was overcome by the deep need that these children have. Without the training, physical care, and support that the Safi-Child team provides, these children would likely be without security, shelter, and Godly role models.

We are called by God to help the helpless, and that is exactly what the Safi-Child team is doing. Based on what I have seen and heard, God is blessing this work with fruitful growth in the children who are being served.

I am honoured to participate in God’s work here even though my contribution is very small.
