In Rwanda many families continue live in poverty,over 2 decades ago 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.
