RwandaChild was set up in 2007 as a project of the charity freespirit, The aim was to see children from Rwanda sponsored in and around Sheffield. Over the course of the next 9 years we have grown considerably in both size and reach. With the addition of a solid support base in Northern Ireland, Wales and all around England we have reached over 150 children from 3 communities in Rwanda that are sponsored and going to school. RwandaChild's main focus is child sponsorship, which is achieved through a partnership with Africa New Life Ministries. But we are always looking out for new ways to help.

Cat and Siy Ross Currently living Sheffield. We love God and we love Rwanda. For 3 years we lived in Kigali, the capital city of Rwanda. We served as volunteers to our partner organisation in Rwanda, Africa New Life Ministries (ANLM). We feel God has called us back to live in the UK for a time before our next adventure. Wherever we are we are always thinking and praying for Rwanda and its people.
