Sponsor a Child in Rwanda
A Quick Glimpse at Rwanda
Rwanda is a small landlocked country in the Great Lakes region of east-central Africa and is the continent's most densely populated country. In April 1994, the world was shocked and saddened by the genocide of roughly 800,000 people in Rwanda, which also decimated its fragile economic base.
- An estimated 60 percent of the population lives below the poverty line.
- Almost 84 percent of the population exists on less than U.S.$2 a day.
- More than 8 percent of the rural population is affected by the pandemic of HIV and AIDS.
