About RTM

 

RTM is a Christian faith-based non-profit organization committed to following Jesus' footsteps of loving God and loving our neighbors as we love ourselves.  That commitment and faith is the foundation of our calling to serve children with disabilities and their families who are truly among the most neglected people in developing countries.

Mission & Vision

"To serve children with disabilities and their families in Rwanda

for the renewal of their body, mind, spirit and community"

Holistic Support Program

 

Have you heard of the African proverb "it takes a village to raise a child"?  It illustrates the complexity and efforts involved in raising a child.  Imagine how much more complicated and difficult it would be to support a child with a disability living in a community where poverty, isolation, discrimination are norms. 

 

We believe that a child with a disability needs attention and support in all aspects of his or her life - body, mind, emotions, spirit and relationships within the surrounding community Therefore, RTM strives to support them by providing holistic developmental and educational support.  

Frankly speaking, holistic support requires sophisticated and extensive resources, expertise and infrastructure which do not exist in rural areas of Rwanda. That's why RTM is working to develop a holistic support model tailored to and suitable for the environment in which our children live.
