Founded by refugees for refugees, Legacy's mission is to provide hope and healing to refugees in the Middle Tennessee area by empowering refugees with education and skills to achieve stability and thereby facilitating successful integration into American society.
William and Ebraile Mwizerwa began the refugee ministry arm of Legacy Mission Village in 2000, begun under the umbrella of the local non-profit organization African Leadership. Over the years, William has served the refugee community in middle Tennessee as a minister, a counselor and a teacher, well-equipped to encourage those he works with as he and his family know first-hand the plight that refugees face because of the trials and suffering that they endured in their homeland of Rwanda.
Legacy Mission Village is a 501(3)(c) Christian mission organization that achieved its non-profit status in January 2012. Our organization relies on the generous contributions of our supporters and the selfless efforts of our volunteers.
