The after effects of the genocide led to thousands upon thousands of orphans & vulnerable children being on the streets (homeless) and/or abused. A high percentage of these children also lost their parents to HIV/AIDS and are living in child-headed families. It is estimated that there are about 150,000 people living with AIDS in Rwanda, with 19,000 of those being children under the age of 14. Gender based violence has also taken its toll too affected many children throughout the country.
Faith Victory Association was founded in 2002 by Dr. Immaculate Mukatete and five other professionals, who realized they needed to fight the rising poverty and HIV/AIDs levels. FVA aims to restore hope and is doing so by providing scholarships to orphans, job training to women, counseling to genocide survivors, domestic violence education and therapy. This is all in accomplished in an eco-friendly environment.
FVA is a registered Non-Government Organization (NGO), a non-profit, and a christian Faith Based Organization (FBO) based in Kigali and in the USA. We are dedicated to serving women and children in need throughout Rwanda.
