Project Tourism

There are many projects that we work with and among these include;

  1. Buranga Women Cooperative: These are mainly former prostitutes who are being helped to grow emotionally, spiritually and financially by some well wishers like Jared M. Miller and Dorsey. Rehabilitate former prostitutes by training them to start small scale projects that can generate some income for example knitting and tailoring, pottery and molding, embroidering, production of paper bead jewelry etc. www.keza.com
  2. Women for Women International: Quite a lot of work is being done by the NGO. Please visit website – www.womenforwomen.org/globa-initiatives-helping-women/help-women-rwanda.php
  3. Orphanages and Street Kid projects like Les enfant de dieu in Kigali City, Caritas in Musanze etc. Websites; www.enfantsdedieu.org,

  5. Rwanda Youth Society and global youth connect. www.globalyouthconnect.org
  6. Association of Kigali Women in Sports. www.Akwos.org
  7. Visiting some government civic education centers, Gacaca courts, TIG etc.
    The essence of visiting these projects is to help raise awareness about their work and hence have ambassadors to talk about these projects abroad, to initiate and establish global partnership which can yield support and development but above to create and build understanding.

  • Visiting some government projects such as the civic education centers, TIG etc.
  • Never again projects: This is a very good project in particular for the vliunteer groups who can spend at least five days engaged in activities linked to never again projects such as human rights advocacy and community development, human rights and empowerment debates, social development and other reconciling topics to create understanding for both the Rwandan youth and our partners, friends and visitors. Never again also teaches Rwandan youth between the age of 18 – 24 years lessons hinged on skills development such that they become self reliant. The skills provided include hotel and tourism management, Information Communication Technliogy (ICT), Modern farming (agriculture), Biogas production, Sewing and Tailoring. Many students will benefit from such training and hence acquire knowledge, skills and attitude to make them self-reliant in future.
  • Agaseke Project: Agaseke has been termed as the "peace basket" due to both the historical and commercial merits associated to it. When one gives you a peace basket in the Rwandan tradition, it's a sign of love and strengthening your relationship whether as individuals or a family. Peace baskets are used to keep treasures like jewelry, food stuffs like grains and cereals etc. Girls normally take at least six peace baskets to the husbands home when they are married filled with treasures and food stuffs. The other significance of a peace basket is that, after genocide in Rwanda, majority of women who were not well educated didn't find jobs nor have capital to start up their own business and hence depended largely on their husbands (Men) which fueled conflicts in their home until women started to make peace baskets which were sold through different associations and cooperatives, this made them earn a living plus contributing to the welfare of their homes and statistics indicated that, lots of men were at peace with their wives after they realized how much they were contributing to the family needs thus creating peace in homes and families.
  • One dollar campaign projects: The "One Dollar Campaign for Genocide Survivors" is a project developed by the Rwandan in the country and the Diaspora (community members living in all corners of the globe) and supported by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation (www.minaffet.gov.rw). Or (www.rdgn.org). Partners include the associations advocating for interests of vulnerable genocide survivors such as IBUKA, AVEGA, and AERG, in collaboration with the commission to fight against genocide (CNLG) etc; continuously and specifically advocating for good shelter of the genocide survivors. The tours are aimed at enhancing understanding on how people with self empowerment, commitment and good collaboration can achieve the unexpected. Project will help all genocide orphaned children to get accommodation or a place to call home after the 1994 Tutsi genocide in the country. Clients can voluntarily contribute to this cause after visiting the project.
  • Ubumwe Community Center : The Ubumwe Community Center serves more than 400 children and adults with counseling, primary education, vocational training and workshop employment. The center provides a meal for its students, they are taught literacy, computer skills, the deaf learn sign language, and all are trained to make a variety of crafts including dolls, jewelry and souvenirs.

    The center has now expanded to serve members of the non-disabled community, offering computer and literacy classes. Wildlife conservation is taught in cooperation with the Columbus Zoo. Gisenyi is close to Rwanda's few remaining wild gorillas and the center emphasizes the importance of keeping their habitat intact.

    The center survives on the generosity of individual donors and the income derived from sales of its crafts. The goal is to become self-sustaining over time. Recent support to the UCC has led to the construction of a preschool and primary school that provides inclusive education for disabled students.

  • Kingfisher Journeys : Whether you're new to kayaking or have plenty of previous experience, we'll help you enjoy this relaxing and yet exciting activity.

    Paddling along the lush northern coastline between Gisenyi and Kibuye, we dip into inlets and cross bays. Classic Lake Kivu fishing boats ply the waters and a traditional way of life flourishes along the verdant shore, whilst countless birds dart in and out of bushes and the active Nyiragongo Volcano can be seen rising above the surrounding hills.

    Near to Gisenyi, we visit coffee islands where you can watch (and experience) the entire coffee making process - from bush to cup

    And in Lake Kivu's 'Bay of Islands', near to Kibuye, we explore uninhabited islands, watch roosting bats and marvel at the spectacular scenery
