Muhaza Hope Center

About the project

Among the objectives set by HOPE FAMILY MINISTRIES is the construction of socio-educational centers for the development of widows, teen mothers, orphaned girls, and other vulnerable individuals. On the hill of MUHAZA, commonly known as MUSHOJI, HFM had plan to build three houses, one of which will be a two-story and serve as a center for people to learn various trades such as sewing, IT, and crafts. Depending on the availability of financial and human resources, they will also have the opportunity to receive additional training in other trades. Currently, two of the houses are still under construction.


HOPE FAMILY MINISTRIES initiated the project "MUHAZA HOPE CENTER" to support the community in the Kayokwe Commune, specifically the Muyebe Zone. The center, which will consist of three houses, aims to provide opportunities for young individuals who are unable to continue their education beyond primary school. Additionally, it will cater to adults seeking to learn various trades and improve their literacy skills. The construction of this center will serve as a hub for knowledge and skill development, enabling individuals to enhance their prospects and contribute to the progress of the community.

Overall objective

The "MUHAZA HOPE CENTER" has a specific goal of promoting the development of Mwaro Province, with a particular focus on the Kayokwe commune. The aim is to provide essential social infrastructure that is necessary for the overall progress of the municipality. By doing so, the center aims to combat the issue of rural exodus, where people migrate from rural areas to urban centers in search of better opportunities. The hope is that by providing the necessary infrastructure and resources, individuals will be encouraged to stay in their communities, contributing to their growth and preventing the loss of talent and potential. The center's efforts align with the broader objective of fostering sustainable development and improving the quality of life in Mwaro Province, ultimately creating a brighter future for its residents.

End result

The project aims to provide support and training opportunities for vulnerable groups in the Muyebe Zone and its surrounding areas. The direct beneficiaries of the project are widows, orphans, teen moms, and indigent groups who are interested in receiving supervision and training in getting a job. By equipping them with the necessary skills, the project aims to empower these individuals and improve their economic prospects. Additionally, secondary school students in the area who wish to gain knowledge in the field of IT will also benefit indirectly from the project. The project also aims to serve the wider community by providing premises for various community activities, benefiting the entire population of the Muyebe Zone and its surrounding areas.


Phase I of the project involves the construction of two houses. One of these houses will have two common rooms, while the other will be designated for workshops. Currently, both houses are in the process of being built, as shown in the pictures provided. Phase II of the project will focus on building a two-story house that will serve as a training facilities and offices. Although the project has already begun, the construction of the two houses is facing delays due to insufficient funding. Despite this setback, the roofs of the two houses have already been completed, and only finishing touches such as plastering, cementing, and the installation of doors and windows remain. Once these finishing works are finished, HFM will then focus on raising funds for the construction of the third house, which will also be a two-story building.

Reverend Sylvestre Hakizimana generously donated his personal land in his hometown to fulfill his dream of establishing a training center in a rural area. He recognized that many young individuals in rural areas are unable to pursue their education due to various challenges. The MUHAZA HOPE CENTER project was initiated with the intention of offering opportunities to learn various trades and occupations, enabling these individuals to enhance their skills and secure a stable source of income. This center aims to empower the youth and provide them with the necessary tools to succeed in life. Reverend Sylvestre Hakizimana's selfless act of giving back to his community will undoubtedly have a profound impact on the lives of many individuals in the rural area.
