Noel Orphanage in Rwanda

Our team will spend the majority of our time in Rwanda ministering to the 700 orphans at Noel It is the oldest and largest orphanage in Rwanda, located in the town of Gisenyi, a few hours drive outside of the capital city of Kegali. They minister to children and young people from a few days old up to age 25. Our team will be loving on some babies, praying with children, playing sports with the kids, teaching Bible stories and songs, doing crafts with them, and just seeking out ways to serve them any way we can. We want to be a blessing to the staff as well and help take the burden of some of their workload while we’re there so we could be taking care of some household needs also.

The nannies who work at Noel love the children and do their absolute best with the resources they have. There are just so few nannies for so many children that they may not get the kind of love and attention that all children need, simply because of the sheer number children vs. number of adults.

Their sweet little faces are killin' me! I just can't wait to get there!
