Rick & Amy Hendel, along with Shane & Enid Mason, co-founded Educate Rwanda to raise awareness about the history of this African country, and the continued struggles, successes, and needs of the Rwandan people.
Rick Hendel has taken three service trips to Africa, with his latest co-leading a team of ten to Rwanda. They took part in training with a Hydraform brick-making machine, which was gifted to this community by generous donors through Educate Rwanda and Valley Church in Vacaville, California. This machine will be used to develop the local community by building new walls and structures.
Educate Rwanda focuses on economic development by partnering with community leaders through small business initiatives, training, and accountability.
