Inshuti of Rwanda is a nonprofit organization working in collaboration with Rwandans to build simply designed, locally sourced, and hygienic housing.
The houses that we construct provide much more than a foundation of a shelter. They provide safety from the elements, prevent the spread of diseases through sanitary flooring, beds with mosquito nets and proper pit latrines. We rely on locally-sourced materials and construction workers paid a fair wage, supplying jobs in the process.
Inshuti means “friend” in Kinyarwanda; we invite you to join us as friends and supporters of our mission.
