Butare Region

The ADEPR Butare SCA program was formed in September 2012 under the supervision of Rev. Gabriel. Reaching parishes in Huye District, Nyaruguru District, Gisagara District and Nyanza district, the program has almost 5,000 members in various SCAs (2,004 males and 2,923 females) as of January 2015.
