THE EMMAUS HOSTEL as INCOME GENERATING ACTIVITY in RWANDA
Within the framework of the creation of income-generating activities (IGA), on 22 January 2022, the starting signal was given for the implementation of the " Emmaus Hostel Project". A project in which, adjacent to " Home de la Vierge des Pauvres (HVP) Gatagara" for persons and children with disabilities, an existing old car garage will be converted into 10 comfortable private rooms for patients and their families or visitors.
