Changing Lives in Rwanda

RSF is led by a group of volunteers who have traveled to Rwanda each summer since 2010.They have fallen head over heels in love with the beautiful villagers in Gisenyi. One hot July 2010 day in Africa, Felix Rudasingwa of Gisenyi helped Nancy Lasseter sponsor a young boy to go to school.( It only takes $25.) Felix suggested that Nancy also give a $100 loan to the boy's aunt to start a business. That, my friends, was the start of a deep and wonderful relationship with the villagers of Gisenyi. That was the start of RSF. Nancy is now the Director and Felix is the Manager.

RSF empowers lives by providing micro-finance loans to families that include medical insurance and funding for education for their children. They offer support groups for the borrowers that include business skills training.

RSF invests in communities by supporting financial independence through the establishment of artisan cooperatives where over 30 women learn weaving, sculpting and sewing.
They have: 
1) funded over 50 microloans to families. 
2) support two artisan cooperatives that teach over 30 women 
3) fund a preschool with 115 children that they feed daily
4) built 7 rain cisterns for the B'twa families
