Andrew Morley urged staff to strive for excellence, stressing that excellence honors God. “Aim for excellence not because of self-pride, but because you’re doing things to the best of our ability in the work that God has called us to do, we honor God. Through honoring God, we are blessed. Challenge each other to excellence and do not allow each other to be second-best, strive for excellence,” he said.

We have been working in Rwanda since 1994. For the first six years, the key focus of our interventions was relief and rehabilitation for the close to 3 million people that were displaced because of the genocide. In the year 2000, we began long-term, child-focused area development programmes in different parts of the country, targeting vulnerable children and their families with interventions in the areas of education and child sponsorship; health and nutrition; water, sanitation and hygiene; and the economic empowerment of households.

Our more than 300 staff in Rwanda currently work in 23 out of 30 Districts, supporting more than 1.5 million people –especially children–through 26 area development programmes.
