Challenge

Our project has 200 beneficiaries who are children and girls mainly. The project beneficiaries have several needs including: food, accomodation, medication, education, training on income generating activities for them to be independent especially those of 14-17 years of age. They need access to legal services in cases of sexual abuse. These children are based in Rwanda in Kigali city.

Solution

The project trains and educated children in Rwanda. The project has helped 100 children, mainly girls, of 10-13 to go to primary school, while other 100 of 14-17 years of age are in catch up classes on a part time basis.

Long-Term Impact

The project will help beneficiaries to have access to education, medication, food and clothes. Girls will be trained about their reproductive health and HIV/AIDS awareness which reduces the number of other street children being born.

This project has provided additional documentation in a Microsoft Word file (projdoc.doc).
