Honorine and her husband, Richard, are blessed with five young children but unfortunately they lead a poor and difficult life. Richard is jobless, he walks three hours into the Congo, one-way, to look for work as a day laborer. If he is lucky he can earn 1,500 RWF or $1.50, but often after walking that distance he comes home empty handed. On those nights, the family does not eat and with young children at home Honorine is unable to help work.
Three years ago, Richard’s family gave them some land in hopes that one day they could build a home of their own. During that time, the family has not been able to break ground due to a lack of money. Instead they rent two tiny rooms for 4,000 RWF a month, in which all seven people reside.
During the 2020 build, Honorine saw many new homes being built in her village by poor families. She wondered how these poor people have enough money to build proper houses. Honorine heard about Inshuti of Rwanda from a neighbor and approached us. After visiting Honorine and learning her family's struggle, we knew they would be a part of our 2021 building program.
Let’s give this young family an opportunity at a better life by building them a new home.
