ORI is dedicated to helping orphans and other socially vulnerable young people in Rwanda pursue a university education and ultimately become leaders in fostering economic development and social reconciliation.
ORI provides holistic support –including tuition, housing, healthcare, counseling and a range of supplemental training programs– to ensure that its students are prepared to excel.
ORI’s principal strategic objectives are as follows:
* To recruit, identify and select orphans and other vulnerable young people who have demonstrated academic talent and individual drive
* To provide financial and other forms of support designed to maximize the likelihood that ORI-selected students will complete their university degrees and be well-positioned to enter the mainstream economy after graduation
* To develop a successful, comprehensive program model that will help catalyze increased access to higher education for vulnerable children in other African countries
