Innovation Centers

We are looking to build five Innovation Centers in rural villages in Rwanda, beginning with Mayange,. These centers will serve as spaces that will bring together the over 900 educated young people who work with Seven United each year to use their skills to help fight poverty. They will be able to work directly with community stakeholders and design creative solutions specifically tailored to individuals, including giving access to technology  and internet to students, small shop owners, and others in these rural settings.

Here are five of the young people who work hard every day as leaders in Seven United--shown with the professions they have already begun or are pursuing, many of them by completing a university degree. (Read more about Joyeuse Uwimana, the accountant, on the  Our Story and Team  page!)

Community Service Projects

Each year, Seven United has mobilized groups of young adults to launch projects ranging from building and repairing houses for orphans and widows to providing poor families with health insurance. Over 500 members of Seven United in Rwanda engage in peer education and raising awareness about sensitive issues. We have created programs through which we have trained local families to prepare balanced, healthy meals and taught rural families how to avoid diseases like malaria and HIV.  Our programs have encouraged youth to be the catalyst that educates and serves their communities, an effective and innovative approach.
