About ERM

It's a big story. It matters. It matters now.


What would you do if you lost almost all of your entire family to a senseless killing? We started a ministry for those who survived and the generation to follow.

The Hope Vocational Training Center (HVTC) is changing lives in Rwanda, Africa. We are endorsed and recognized by such leading international organizations such as Compassion International and World Vision who partner with ERM Rwanda by sponsoring post-genocide students who learn government accredited skills in high demand occupations.

A simple scholarship can change a life

ERM Rwanda has a goal in 2018 to raise $30,000 to bring hope to fifty new families through scholarships. $50/mo or $600/yr will help one student learn a sustainable skill and go to work in a year! Give Now!

Our current demand is high but many applicants come from extreme poverty and simply lack the opportunity to enroll in school to learn a sustainable skill. This is what ERM Rwanda specializes in--bringing hope to those who need it most-- orphans and widows, the poor and vulnerable of this new generation.

Please consider helping us. Your generosity will make all the difference because a scholarship can change a life. For a $50 a month recurring gift, or a one time donation of $600 you will help one student graduate with hope after just one year! Any donation is appreciated!


Restoring a people. Rebuilding a nation.

Since 1996 ERM Rwanda has been a voice for a people struggling to gain freedom and reconciliation. It was only after Founder and Pastor Emmanuel Sitaki, still reeling from the loss of 35 of his own personal family members, that he gathered the strength and courage to return to his homeland. "I was a stranger, a foreigner in my own country," said Sitaki. As he walked the streets he came upon nine orphans and took each of them into his care determined he would find some way to provide for their needs. Soon God reveal his plan--the formation of new family units assembling new widows and orphans together. Emmanuel set out to secure funding for his vision and from that moment ERM Rwanda came into existence.

Today, most of the vulnerable, orphans and widows just desire  having a family, access to education and medical care and enough financial support to have dignity. ERM Rwanda brings this hope and restores dignity to revitalize these through the generosity of donors and effective holistic ministries.
