About RTM

Who We Are

Rise Together Mission (RTM) is a Christian faith-based charitable organization committed to following Jesus' footsteps of loving God and loving our neighbours. At the core of our mission lies a deep commitment and unwavering faith that drive us to serve some of the most neglected individuals in developing countries - children with disabilities and their families.


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

What We Do

You may be familiar with the African proverb, 'it takes a village to raise a child.' Now, envision the immense challenges involved in supporting a child with a disability within a community where poverty, isolation, and discrimination prevail.

Recognizing that children with disabilities require comprehensive attention and support in every aspect of their lives - including physical, intellectual, emotional, spiritual, and social - RTM strives to provide holistic developmental and educational assistance. 

However, facilitating such holistic support requires substantial resources, expertise, and infrastructure, all of which are lacking in the rural areas of Rwanda. This is precisely why RTM is working diligently to develop a tailored holistic support model that accounts for the unique environment in which these children reside.
