Here's how:

Present Needs:
The needs of hundreds of orphans and Karissa & Ericdesperate children, over 30 staff, and hundreds of people traveling in teams to Rwanda requires a substantial amount of administration. One of the areas that you can make a vital difference in, is by contributing to the administrative costs of our Canadian staff who make this project possible. Another way is through your contribution to the significant costs incurred by our staff when traveling to and from Rwanda.
