Egide Ruzinndana – Rwanda

Area Director

Egide grew up as a refugee in Tanzania after his family fled the genocide in Rwanda. They returned to Rwanda after the genocide. In 2002, a friend led Egide to Christ. Later, Egide attended a Young Life leader seminar in Rwanda. He has a passion for street kids, and started a soccer ministry in the Remera neighborhood of Kigali. He also opened the doors of his own home and there are 25 street kids who have a place to lay their heads at night. He started a program to help them make a living and pursue their passions called Love for Hope. He is now an area director in Rwanda. Egide’s goal for Young Life in his country is simple: to help young people start a relationship with Jesus.
