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.
