WHAT WILL WE BE DOING?
We will be spending the majority of our time in the village of Kibeho, where Nyrashishi Primary School, TAF Children's Academy and The Medical Center are located. Our team will be bringing vitamins, lanterns and school supplies for the students and village.
We have partnered with Luminaid to bring solar powered lanterns to our friends in Kibeho. Their homes do not have electricity so these powerful lanterns are truly life-changing for them!
If you have a passion for teaching, you'll have the opportunity to work with the new ADFA Children's Academy! We are excited to open up the world of language, reading and the arts to our students.
We are also planning some art classes and a music workshop. It's going to be a special trip!
If you prefer medical care, you can spend some time at TAF Medical Center that serves the community of Kibeho.
Once you join the team, we'll work a plan that is just right for you.
We are looking forward to another beautiful Immersion Trip and pray that you can join us!

"I wish there were words to adequately convey my experience in Rwanda. But there really aren't because it had to be felt. From long, exhausting plane rides to a sunrise walk too incredible for words to the feeling of their hands in mine, it is all forever imprinted on my heart and in my soul."
Jana Sipe Berndt
"We came to see and experience the impact that TAF has had on the village [of Kibeho]. We felt the love, we saw the joy and we were compelled to create in the students, the desire to stretch their minds. We learned as much from them as they did from us. I long for the day I will get to return and continue God’s work in Africa."
