In the immediate aftermath of the genocide, we helped trace parents or relatives of thousands of children who had become separated from their families. Since then, we have been working in partnership with the government and local stakeholders to promote a bright future for Rwanda’s children.
Our primary focus is on health, nutrition, education, child protection and children’s rights:
- We’re supporting the Rwanda Ministry of Health in the fight against chronic malnutrition
- We’re implementing an innovative programme to support improved literacy for children aged 0-9
- We’re reaching over 500,000 people through community-based child protection networks to ensure children are safe from abuse, exploitation and child labour
- We’re partnering with the Child Rights Civil Society Coalition to better coordinate efforts to promote the rights of children.
