Hirwa Children's Foundation

Hope Is Where the Heart Is


About Us

Our mission is to provide children living in impoverished conditions with free quality education, proper housing, adequate health care and nutrition to ensure them a better quality of life and a more prosperous future. By leveraging education, we can help break systemic poverty and leave each generation more successful than the last. In addition to this, Hirwa has designed joint literacy and language programs to serve the adults of the community.


November, 2023

We have initiated a project to complete our volunteer house and construct three new school bathrooms. These facilities are essential to support our educational programs and accommodate our dedicated volunteers, the building is almost finished just missing a few things to complete.
