What BETTER Looks Like (WBLL) fosters the development of beloved community by helping individuals imagine, articulate and create visions for a better world. The intentional infusion of love into our interactions has the power to create the radical changes necessary to make the world better.
Seven friends—the Amahoro* Women of WBLL—felt a compelling desire to connect with the people of Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). In 2010, the friends—one of whom is a Rwandan genocide survivor—journeyed to both countries. As a result of our incredible trip, we developed a community based project for the poverty stricken people of Nyarugunga Village in Rwanda, including the current sponsorship of students in college.
After speaking and being with many women in Congo, specifically at the Heal Africa hospital in Goma who have suffered severe brutality (more than 15,000 women were brutally sexually assaulted last year alone), our mission on how we could help them was clear. Their voices need to be heard.
Amahoromeans PEACE in Kinyarwanda, the language of Rwanda
