One Year in Mission: Intiganda Centre Butare, Southern Province, Rwanda
Since 1987, the Intiganda Center works to provide a brighter future to
street children. Most of the children are orphans who were abandoned
by their families or fled from their villages because, according to local
superstition, they were believed to be cursed. The Center protects these
children. It welcomes them and provides a path toward psychological
rehabilitation and reintegration into school all within a familial, nurturing
atmosphere. Most of the children are reunited with their families within
two years. The Center has serviced many children left without family and
without a home after the widespread Rwandan genocide of 1994.
