In 2012, we built our 1st house for a widow in Rwanda. Virginia Mukakimenyi (pictured below) was chosen by her village to be the first recipient as they said her current living conditions were "worse than an animal". She received a 4-room house and a bed to sleep and she told us, "I now live like a rich woman."
Sadly, Virginia passed away this past weekend but it's great to know that she lived the final years of her life with shelter and a place to call home.
We can build a home for a widow in Rwanda for just $3500. Whether you give the entire amount or a portion of it . . . we can give a widow the dignity of a home and better life. riverspromise.reachapp.co/projects

In 2017, National Geographic listed Rwanda at a top place to visit. We agree with that statement! Rwanda is known as "the land of a thousand hills" and should be on everyone's Bucket List. We'd love to be your tour guides to show you this amazing country and introduce you to the beautiful people of Rwanda.

When serving in Congress representing Colorado's CD-6, Rep. Tom Tancredo helped expedite much of the paperwork for River's adoption & immigration to the USA. Now, 10 years later, Rep. Tancredo will join us for a charity dinner to benefit the work of "River's Promise" in Rwanda.
The event will be Wednesday, October 3, 2018, at Del Frisco's Double Eagle Steakhouse in the Denver Tech Center. Limited seating is available. Tickets are $200 per person and includes dinner at Del Frisco's and a cigar to be enjoyed.
As part of this fantastic charity dinner event, Rep. Tancredo will share unique "behind the scenes" stories from his time in Congress in Washington, D.C.. The theme of the night is "A Dive Into The Swamp". From protestors, death threats, Nancy Pelosi, Keith Ellison, Paul Ryan . . . Tancredo has plenty of entertaining tales from "The Swamp" and there will be a Q&A. This event is perfectly timed to inform & entertain prior to the 2018 mid-term election!
Seating is very limited and tickets are on sale now! Join us for dinner on October 3 at Del Frisco's. ALL proceeds benefit "River's Promise". CLICK HERE TO GET YOUR TICKETS NOW!
Over the past few months, many of our sponsored children in Rwanda told us of much devastation during the recent monsoon/rainy season. Some told of children drowning in overflowing rivers - while other talked about the lack of shelter.
These reports of devastation have inspired us to begin a new MONSOON & CRISIS RELIEF FUND. With this fund we will work more diligently to keep children safer during the next monsoon season. Sending a child to school is great - but we need to make sure they can stay dry & safe at night. We can build a 4-room house for only $3000. We need to build more of these safe structures as well as explore options for other size structures. We will also be sure that rain jackets, boots, & umbrellas are available for children as they walk to school.
We have too many of our children who live in mud-huts that wash away during heavy rains. Some children even live in lean-tos that are covered with mosquito netting & leaves from banana trees. The next rainy season is October-November so we have much work to do . . . and our Monsoon & Crisis Relief Fund will get us started. CLICK HERE TO DONATE NOW.
It's almost time for our 2nd Annual River’s Promise 2018 Golf Tourney at The Colorado National Golf Course in Erie on September 14th! For more information and to buy tickets, please go to https://co.clickandpledge.com/advanced/default.aspx?wid=137366.
