Welcome to the Elevation Project!

2007 marked the start of a wonderful story of partnership and change. What started as a small spark — a vision for a mutual partnership in ministry — has now turned into a strong relationship, that inspires and transforms the work the we do in Vancouver as well as in Kigali, Rwanda. This partnership has not only impacted the work of our organization, but it has touched and changed many lives of youth in their struggle to become themselves.

Our Vision

We break the cycle of poverty in the lives of Canadian & Rwandan youth by providing holistic education and leadership development opportunities.


I tell people that what makes my day is coming to the office and hear the noise of the kids. I come around and see the teachers. I love it. This is the future of Rwanda. We see business people, we see political leaders, we see church leaders. And my dream is to see […] that we can build more schools. That we can sponsor more kids.” – Jean Baptiste Mugarura, Director of YFC Rwanda
