Dear Friends,
Receive many greetings from all in Rwanda Africa.

From the 21st of October till the 18th of November 2008 we were in Kigali Rwanda, to help the less fortunate people.
Stichting Geloof Hoop En Liefde in Holland has founded: “Association Hope” in Rwanda. We help orphans, aids-children, youth and widows.


The leadership of “Association Hope” in Rwanda consists of Mary Kaitesi Coordinator and Pastor Faustin and 6 staff. We have 3 projects; the Sewing School, the Aids Children and the Vegetable Plantation Project. In this newsletter we like to present the ministry of the Aids Project to you.

Peter Gatete and Pastor Faustin in Rwanda nov. 2008

Pastor Faustin;

We have started by speaking with the children and singing with them. Now we have a meeting every Sunday which is the only church in the area. The place we are in now is already too small.

On the picture you can see the church service of Pastor Faustin in the building made of mud.

Several times a week the children come together like this to listen to Pastor Faustin his message of Hope, Faith and Love. And they can sing very beautiful in worship to God. See the beautiful videos at;

I want to go to school

Testimony of Uwamahoro Verantina,

In my family we were all born with Aids and one child died. I never got to know my dad because he died of Aids when I was very young. I was born during the 1994 genocide war and people wanted to kill us but we went and hid ourselves in the house of relatives. We have to pay rent for our house and there is no money to pay for my school fees, so I have missed a lot of schooling. And if I ever was at school, at lunch break I could not go home to eat lunch because there was no food at home. Later Pastor Faustin started this church and I started to come to the meetings. And I was registered in the Aids Orphans project. Since that time I can go to school again. And I thank you very much for helping me go to school again. Before I always went to school barefoot, but now I have gotten shoes from you, thank you very much. Thank you very much for the school books and uniforms and for everything you have done for me.

This is the story of Didas Nduwimana;

He lives on the street and has no parents, How come? When he was 5 years old he lived in Burundi, a country south of Rwanda. On day for fun, he grabbed onto a passing truck, but the truck went faster and faster and he did not dare jump off again until he reached Rwanda. Now he is 14 years old and is hungry often and he wants to go to school and he wants to go back to his parents. Do you want to help us find his parents and make sure he goes to school? Please send your gift with the message “Didas”.

I live on the street

In January the new school year starts in Rwanda, and then all the school fees have to be paid. We have helped 64 children in the past 2 school years this way. We have promised to help them again next year but we don’t have the money yet, the children count on your support. Do you like to help?

Send your gift with the note “School”

Friendly greetings and thank you very much for your support, God bless you

Wat doen wij?
Ons doel is de minderbedeelde mensen in Rwanda te helpen. Op het moment doen we dit met 3 projecten; 1) De Naaischool waar we jonge mensen een jaar lang opleiden in het mode vak, en als ze slagen krijgen ze een naaimachine mee om er direct mee te kunnen werken. 2) Het Aidskinderenproject waar we 64 kinderen helpen weer naar school te gaan. 3) Het groenteproject, waar we meehelpen met zaadjes uit Nederland voor het aanplanten van betere groente in Rwanda. Al deze projecten worden uitgevoerd door vrijwilligers in Rwanda en zijn afhankelijk van uw
