Our trip goals:
- Business English Camp
- Children's/Youth/Young Adult Programs
- Ministry Training.
We are especially in need of teachers, business professionals, children/youth ministry workers, and French speakers. We also need candidates who have a background in teaching, especially ESL, for our Business English Camp. We also need business professionals with experience in Entrepreneurship, Management, Accounting, Retail, and Marketing, among other skills.
For our children's and youth programs, we need spiritually mature candidates that can minister to the children and youth.
Rwanda was the scene of one of the most horrifying genocides since the Holocaust. Approximately 1 million people were brutally and systematically killed in 1994. Since then, the country has struggled to reconcile surviving Hutus and Tutsis, though much progress has been made.
The genocide devastated the economy, but the economy has since rebounded and is growing. Rwanda is seeking to transform itself from a low-income agriculture-based economy to a knowledge-based, service-oriented economy by 2020. The current major parts of the economy are tourism, mineral exports and coffee/tea exports, but the information and communication technology industries are growing in importance.
Rwanda is a nominal Christianized nation, but this did not stop the genocide from happening. Much work is needed spiritually.
