Miracle Corners of the World- Rwanda (International NGO)



MCW (Miracle Corners of the World) is a non-profit organization founded in 1999 with the vision “Communities throughout the world achieve greater levels of education, improved health and increase economic security” and mission to address communities pressing needs by empowering current leaders and readying leaders of tomorrow. Based in New York, with partner organizations in Africa (Rwanda, Sierra Leone, Tanzania and Zambia), MCW offers the following: Community Development, Oral Health Care and Young Leaders programs. MCW also supports Partner Initiatives, including Human Rights and Pediatric AIDS Treatment for Africa (PATA).

Miracle Corners Rwanda (MCR) was born in 2008 in response to the local community needs to develop relevant skills and capacity toward social and economic transformation.

In keeping with MCW mission to address communities’ pressing needs by empowering current leaders and readying leaders of tomorrow, As part of this broad mission, a Youth Community Center was officially opened in August 2011 in Kayenzi, in Bugesera District of the Eastern Province of Rwanda. The Center was built in partnership with MCW’s Jacqueline’s Human Rights Corner. Bugesera was chosen as the site of MCR’s work in the country due to the high level of genocide survivors living in the region.

MCR main work is in Technical Vocational and Education Training (TVET) in ICT and Tailoring.
