Each Bridge2Rwanda Scholar is connected with a number of local U.S. host families. The role of a host family is to welcome students into their homes during school breaks and to create opportunities for them to broaden their network of friends and experience America. In some cases, host families also provide and help raise financial support for their Scholars.
“Becoming a host family for B2R has been one of the best decisions we have ever made for our family, an absolute game changer. We had no idea that in such a short time, our hearts and lives would be forever changed. We have added a precious son and daughter to our family and I daresay, that we have been way more blessed by them than they have by us. This entire experience, and the chance to create deep, meaningful relationships with these amazing young people is one that we are eternally grateful for.”
