It takes a village to transform a child. 

Through healing, education, and love, the Agahozo-Shalom Youth Village empowers orphaned and vulnerable Rwandan youth to build lives of dignity and contribute to a better world.

Hello, from your guides.

Hello! We are Noella and Bosco, and we will be your guides today. We are students at ASYV and attend the Liquidnet Family High School. Our days are filled with school, activities, and time spent with the family, among many other things. You’ll see our faces pop up throughout the site, helping to explain what ASYV is, how it works, and how you can get involved. Maybe there is even a chance we'll get to meet, if you visit ASYV!

What can one village do?
