Rwanda has experienced unparalleled violence and turmoil in recent years. Many villages have been left in the wake of these situations, and Nalani'ikaleomana Foundation has made numerous trips to this area to help these people rebuild. From dealing with PTSD to helping them reestablish medical facilities and schools, this work has been extensive and rewarding.
Many Rwandans have faced difficult issues in their community. War, poverty, and education challenges among others. This class was designed to deal with the grief and hardship felt by the single mothers and widows left in this area after violence affected them.
These girls are in the recovery process in their village after everything that has happened there. We had some fun and taught them a Hawaiian chant, which they all picked up very quickly and joined in on the 2nd verse!
This farm helps to feed area children as well take care of orphaned boys and girls.
A new medical facility being built that services children, teens, and single mothers. This clinic will offer dental, X-ray, and lab services.
