Let them Grow, Give them Hope.
There are currently 20 beautiful, joyful children living onsite at Nibakure. Each have come from different backgrounds but now share a future of Hope.
The village has been blessed with four amazing women that are the backbone of day-to-day operations.
Three homes house the 20 children, four Moms, Assistant Director and his family and any visitors that come to the village.
NCV is located just outside of the village of Nyamata, Rwanda which is about 40 miles outside of the capital city, Kigali.
Rwanda is making a remarkable comeback following the devastating genocide of 1994. Known as the land of 1000 hills, beauty, culture and hospitality now characterize this country.
Nibakure is a US based non-profit led by a passionate leadership team with a diverse background of experiences.
The long term use of the facility will be to house visiting faculty, students, and volunteers primarily from our main supporters: Hope College. This will create operating revenue for village operations as well as provide the village with other technical resources.
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.
