Meet Deborah and Amiga
In Memory of Anne Heyman
As Enrichment Year students, Deborah and Amiga may have only just arrived in the Village, but this hasn't stopped them from jumping into Village life head first. By supporting ASYV's female empowerment initiatives and participating in Tikkun Olam, they are embracing their new family.
An ASYV New Year's
"Each day we continue to improve, to become better - and even without her, it is thanks to her."
A Milestone Graduation - Congratulations Icyizere Grade
New Year's Eve at Agahozo-Shalom was as unique as it was wonderful. It was so special to celebrate the changing of the calendar with the new Enrichment Year students at the Village. Preparations for the event began almost as soon as the students arrived.
An Election to Remember
While October 19th may have been a very normal day for most people in Rwanda, it was anything but at the Agahozo-Shalom Youth Village. Cloudy skies loomed overhead holding back rain, mushanana-clad educators ran around campus and green capped and gowned students eagerly took pictures with their Village families.
Congratulations to our newly elected 2018 Student Government ministers!
This is the first year Monitoring, Evaluation, Accountability, and Learning (MEAL) has been fully implemented at ASYV. We’re learning so much about our students and programs, and starting to make some exciting changes!
For the first time, the MEAL team collected baseline data on all new students. Baseline data includes recruitment data, answers to the Intake form completed by students’ guardians on their first day, information from students’ physical and psychosocial evaluations, and their answers to two surveys, DAP (Developmental Asset Profile) and KAP (Knowledge, Attitude, and Practices) administered in their first few weeks at ASYV.
