Last week, Team Rwanda paid a special visit to the ‘Centre for Champions’ campus in Rwamagana, to speak to former street children and provide them some words of hope.
Run by the African Evangelical Enterprise (AEE), the center supports up to 300 street kids and 300 kids from impoverished homes in the local community. The center offers physical, emotional, and spiritual support as well as life skills. However its main function is that of a school where the teenagers get a chance to catch up on what they have missed and give them the capacity to enter university.
Speaking to the kids was an opportunity to instill hope, love and a sense of purpose into their hearts. And the riders made a real impact on the kids! Their inspiring stories brightened the hearts of every teenager at the center and gave them a real sense of a future.
The riders from Team Rwanda have also come from a background of impoverishment, abandonment and despair and their stories made a huge impact on the lives of these kids.
