Challenge

In Rwanda many families continue live in poverty, over twenty years after the horrific genocide that took place in 1994. The genocide left millions of people traumatised and several parents were unable to cope. Aside from orphans, children run to the streets to escape poverty at home, domestic violence, abuse and in search of a better future and more independent life. Conditions on the street are harsh and children face violence, hunger and often turn to drugs as an escape from their reality.

Solution

Les Enfants de Dieu recruits children from the streets, alleviates their poverty and provides them with education or vocational skills, counseling and good values. The center can accommodate approximately 100 children and 140 parents. rehabilitation will go parallel for children and parents by receiving healing sessions,build relationship and resilience then do further more to children as they are accommodated for six months. Apart from that parents will be skilled and empowered economically.

Long-Term Impact

Once former street kids are fully rehabilitated ,reintegrated and educated in this way they are equipped to be valuable members of society who are able to contribute for social economic developments of their families ,community and the country.The project has been running for 17 years and 594 beneficiaries have become contributing members of society as many of them are self employed while some others are engineers,psychologist hospitality,plumbers,welders etc. Their parents will be sustained.
