They call Rwanda the land of a thousand hills. While rich with beauty and natural resources, strong economic growth, and political stability since the 1994 genocide, this small but mighty nation still has quite a few challenges. Thankfully, the land of a thousand hills has thousands of churches ready to mobilize their members to be the hands and feet of Jesus in their communities!

In spite of the overwhelming levels of poverty and both short & long term hurdles, there are glimmers of hope to be found and that's where our strategic partnership with dozens of local churches come into play, particularly under the leadership of our key partners, Pastors Pacifique & Kendi Hakizimana.
Pacifique is our partner in Rwanda. He is married to Eunice Kendi and together they have five children. After several encounters with God, Pacifique's heart was stirred and in 2009 he and his wife created Fatherhood Sanctuary, a ministry that seeks to reveal God's heart to the people. Their ministry includes the church and gospel music center, a school for vulnerable children, and the Hope Center that serves vulnerable women. Pacifique dreams of his ministry being firmly established and touching every nation on earth. When not doing ministry, he loves to spend quality time with his family and read.
Set beautifully alongside Volcanoes National Park in the northern part of Rwanda, Musanze District is also a place where poverty levels are high and in desperate need of local churches with a heart to reach beyond the four walls of their buildings to love their neighbors in words and deeds. Fatherhood Ministries is an incredible example of such a church.
Fatherhood has an incredibly vibrant music ministry and has various programs available to help youth, mothers, couples, as well as the capacity to bring together many other churches in the district to host seminars, conferences, and outreaches.
The key initiatives Mosaic International has been able to partner with Fatherhood have been specifically related to mercy ministries, community engagement, and outreach. In addition to supporting the church itself, we support the ongoing work of their preschool that focuses specifically on low income families and single mothers; a comprehensive sewing & business skills program for vulnerable women, and various relief and development initiatives such as solar lights, building homes for displaced families after a flood, and food relief for families particularly hit by the covid pandemic.
