About Us

The Benebikira Sisters played a heroic role during the Rwandan Genocide and have had a vital role in rebuilding the country since. In the village of Save, they managed to shelter over 350 people in their church for two and a half months. In all, twenty Benebikira Sisters were killed during the Genocide. They currently educate over 5000 students (80% of them girls), run or work in hospitals and health centers, run 3 orphanages for 375 children of the Genocide, and staff or operate guesthouses throughout Rwanda.

The Benebikira Sisters Foundation will coordinate and expand the fundraising and marketing efforts of the Sisters in the United States to enable them to expand their ambitious work of providing education, healthcare, and hospitality that have been vital to rebuilding Rwanda.
