We’re pleased to announce an upcoming 2015 trip to Rwanda for child sponsors and donors. The trip cost will include air travel, all lodging (including night in London), ground transportation, translators/travel guides in Rwanda, and breakfast/lunch. All this is included for just around $2800 total, an unbelievable great price.

We’re looking at travel dates of November 20-28, covering Thanksgiving week to help minimize number of vacation days some have to take from jobs. Interested parties should email info@riverspromise immediately to receive additional information.


In early March, Sam Barnett (Owner of Barlow’s Premium Cigars & Pipes) in Lafayette, Colorado, saw our 2015 goals.. After reading the goals he contacted our founder, Jimmy Lakey, and said he wanted to be a part.

Within several days, Sam was hosting a fundraising event at his cigar shop. The event featured the involvement of other businesses/vendors in the area, a charity poker tournament, and lots of cigars. The event raised funds to build 4 houses and added 7 new child sponsors.

We are grateful for the generosity of Sam Barnett & Barlow’s Cigars. We look forward to future events and leading an upcoming trip to Rwanda for many of the attendees at the event.
