What They Do


AVSI Foundation works towards development that is sustainable and capable of responding to the real needs of people, inspired by the Social Teaching of the Catholic Church. To this end, it works hard on projects focused on the challenge of education, in which the individual is accompanied and becomes the central character of their own development, and invests a lot of energy in promoting organizations within civil society.

AVSI Rwanda involves families and communities to empower themselves and become protagonists of their own destiny by working to improve the capacities of the communities, schools, educators and families who help children discover their inherent potential
