His Hands On Africa (HHOA) believes in equipping communities to achieve sustainability with dignity. To address the lack of dental services, HHOA has identified a three-fold approach in multi-year stages that is based on fostering relationships with local communities and partnering with Rwandan citizens to invest in their future.
Hope Dental Center
Help those in need Operate sustainable healthcare Partner with the people of Rwanda Educate and equip the next generation
Today, there is only one dentist for every 250,000 Rwandan citizens.
His Hands On Africa’s long-term goal is to increase the number of Rwandan dentists by establishing a state-of-the-art dental center, the HOPE Dental Center, in the capital city of Kigali. It will serve not only as the training ground where young Rwandan dentists receive advanced education, spiritual discipleship and hands-on training from U.S. specialists, but also as the home base for our network of Compassion Community Dental Clinics, which will be staffed by newly-minted dentists. These Clinics will provide much needed dental care throughout the country. His Hands On Africa will help break the cycle of pain and suffering by raising Christian dentists who will serve their communities through Gospel-centered healthcare with the aim to expand this transformative impact beyond Rwanda into the surrounding African nations.
Compassion Community Dental Clinics
Our goal is to set up Compassion Community Dental Clinics (CCDC) at strategic locations throughout Rwanda to provide much needed dental care to the people who have no access to dental care. Along with delivery of dental care, the dental clinic staff will share the good news of Jesus Christ with each patient. The community dental clinic will serve as a hub for our mobile clinic ministry and our short term dental mission teams.
And he took the children in his arms, placed his hands on them and blessed them. (Mark 10:16)
We will fund and operate mobile dental clinics in remote areas of Rwanda to serve those without the means or access to even the basic dental care.
Discipleship & Mission Training
While our scholarship students are receiving elevated education to be the best future dentists of Rwanda, we also desire to continue that spiritual training of discipleship after secondary school within the dental clinic setting. Our vision is to train and send out dental missionaries to the far-reaching regions of Rwanda and to the many nations in Africa that not only have an absence of dental health care, but more importantly a lack of the gospel of Christ
