About ASYV: ASYV began as a special project supported by JDC and is a residential community in rural Rwanda, home to youth who were orphaned during and after the genocide in 1994. The Village is designed to care for, protect and nurture its students while developing Rwanda's future leaders. Within ASYV's supportive and structured community, the rhythm of life is being restored, with the ultimate goal of equipping young people who have lived through great trauma to become healthy, self-sufficient, and engaged in the rebuilding of their nation.
