The purpose of One27 is to meet the needs of orphans and widows in their distress (after James 1:27). In 1994, the Rwandan genocide resulted in the mass murder of parents, husbands, and many more. Additionally, women were raped by known-HIV positive men, leaving a generation of children parentless. One27 focuses on the care and spiritual growth of the people of Rwanda. Through their child sponsorship program, children are able to go to school, leading them to a better future. I have travelled to Rwanda with One27 Ministries to serve in the schools working with teachers and also to share the Gospel. The hardship these people have been through as a country is unexplainable.
