Friends of Rwanda Association (FORA) is a non-profit people-to-people program for helping orphaned children in Rwanda support themselves. FORA was founded in 1995 after the 1994 massacre that took place in Rwanda. We specialize in serving remote areas not served by other agencies. FORA is a friend to innocent victims. FORA helps to equip young survivors to better support themselves and their families. We can contribute our time, talents and money to further FORA's goals of bringing skills of intermediate technology to children who might otherwise be overlooked. Many function as heads of households and do not have the luxury of going to high school. They need practical vocational skills to earn a living so they can support themselves and their siblings.
