For children born of rape in Rwanda, living the life of a poverty-stricken outsider is expected. But Foundation Rwanda is trying to change that.

Foundation Rwanda, a nonprofit that works with Rwandan families and victims of the 1994 genocide, offered the children it works with a blank canvas on which to draw their dreams. Those vibrant, hopeful images -- of children growing up to become doctors and homes with running water -- were then compiled into "Color Rwanda with Hope, " a coloring book whose proceeds will help provide education for the nearly 20,000 children in need.

Get a glimpse of the children's work below and consider donating to the cause here.
