We have come a long way since Nibakure started. Click here to explore our growing village.
Our orchards and greenhouses are thriving, click here to learn more about our goal of 100% sustainability.
Nibakure has partnered with a local women's co-op to complete some of our recent projects onsite!
Today, Nibakure is home to 20 former orphans and seven, wonderful caregivers. We also care for additional kids who live in the surrounding area. We are very blessed.
Over the next five years, our goal is to generate 100% of Nibakure’s operating budget through sustainable income sources. Achieving this objective will allow continued growth. One day, Nibakure Village will be home to more than 120 kids at any given time.
We dream big and ask for your help. We are asking 80 people to pledge support at one of 16 levels, ranging between $1-$30,000. If five gifts are received at each level by the end of 2014, we’ll reach our goal of $544,455.

We can't thank each of you enough for helping us have a brighter future!
Our new favorite activity is building things with LEGOS! Houses, cars, and airplanes can now be found scattered across our village.
Through a partnership with the local hotel, we are learning how to swim. And we love it!
Each night we gather around the table to enjoy some scrumptious food.

Nibakure Village, with the help of the widows of Rwanda, will provide orphaned children with safe housing, a foster family, healthcare, education and career training. Our mission to these children is to “Let Them Grow, Give Them Hope”– Nibakure in Kinyarwanda.
Develop a vibrant, sustainable village which will house up to 150 children ages 6 years old and up. We focus on the child’s needs holistically through on-site education, healthcare, counseling, spiritual development and career planning.
