The Agahozo-Shalom Youth Village (ASYV) is a residential community for teenage orphans in Rwanda and is home to 500 teenagers and over 100 staff.
The Village is designed to care, protect, and nurture the teens who were orphaned during and after the genocide in 1994. In addition to an exemplary secondary education, the ASYV offers enrichment programs in sports, arts, and culture and provides a healthy environment that helps the teenagers grow both emotionally and intellectually.
Agahozo-Shalom is a place where traumatized teens “dry their tears” (Agahozo) and “live in peace” (Shalom). They gain skills necessary to become leaders, continue rebuilding Rwanda, and make the world a better place. Visit www.asyv.org for more information.
