Who Are Inshuti Familes
Single-Mother Families

Since the beginning, we have prioritized sheltering single-mother families with no support system. Most of these women have been abandoned by their husbands or widowed and left alone with the burden of caring for their large families.

Hard-Working Father Families

We also emphasize rewarding hard-working fathers who try to support their families. Usually, these families dwell in dilapidated houses due to a lack of resources and jobs.

Inshuti Masons & Workers

Our vision is not just to build homes but to continue to expand our community of Inshuti. Many of our house recipients are masons and workers who have been Inshuti employees for multiple building seasons.


People who survived the genocide live with unbearable trauma and are alone after losing their entire families. Sheltering survivors provides them with a safe living environment, allowing them to heal and rebuild their lives.

Genocide Survivor
House Recipient Interview, 2017

"I have survived the genocide only to be a refugee in the Congo, but I always wanted to return to Rwanda to raise my children. Now we live in a terrible house with a leaking roof and sleep on the dift floor."

worries of a father
Building JP's House, 2020

"I am an old man (42 years old) and HIV+, making it harder for me to do manual labor all day. I go to sleep sad knowing I can't provide for my family and worry how I will feed my children."

A new beginning
An Inshuti Home, 2020

"I can't believe people in America would care about how we live. I feel like my family now has the chance of surviving, and my children will have a better life.”

Two Years Later, 2022

"For the first time in my life, I'm saving money because I don't have to fix an old house. Now money I earn buys food and clothes for my family. I even bought pigs and built this pig pen as an investment".
