youth with a mission

Equipping for the great commission

Youth With A Mission Rwanda is an inter-denominational organization that started in 1995 in the aftermath of the 1994 Genocide against Tutsi that claimed more than one million victims.

The genocide left multitude of social and psychological challenges in the Rwandan society.

Our vision is to make disciples of Jesus Christ and guide them to serve God depending on their respective calling.

Our goals are to meet physical and spiritual needs of widows, orphans and young people in the communities.

Meeting these goals is a stepping-stone to achieving our vision.
