Build Healthy Relationships in100 Rwandan Couples

Educational theatre, family advice.

Achieving a Better Life continues to grow.  In the last three months we continued hosting theatre performances, each about a different face of domestic violence or the undervaluing of women. Our team continually strives to improve our project, distributing evaluations after performances and surveying community members, then responding to criticism and modifying their programming to engage in the most prevalent issues. This March we performed a play shows different images of a barren woman in Rwandan community. We are teaching the community basing on their views. The play shows many different advices given to barren women in our community. They are the following: Consulting witch doctors, where sometimes are stolen a lot of money and asked thing which are not viable. For Christians, they are advised consultating pastors. The play shows that the right way to handle barren issue is looking for medical doctors. 


After working on that issue, ABl adopted a new strategy to reach more couples faces the same problem for more understanding of advises. We found that when we do performance, we meet a great number of women and men. Our target is to change the mindset regarding some cultural taboos. This has been done and comments are great. Every body is saying that, ABL is doing a great job. Many people are calling me day and night to congratulate, we are real happy to touch the heart of people.
