About Us

Rwanda Gift for Life (RGFL) was established in 2005 by Rakiya Omaar in Kigali, and Stephanie Urdang in Montclair, New Jersey to respond to the ongoing hardships and trauma suffered by genocide rape victims who continue to live with the trauma of the past, struggle to care for their families while living with, and slowly dying of, AIDS.  The project grew to support over 30 women and their 100 children, many of whom are adopted orphans.

They were joined by an energetic group of volunteers both in Rwanda and the US, particularly Montclair including clubs at a middle school and the High School, supportive teachers, active parents among others.
