Summary

While we currently run a new education project, our old program transformed nearly 40 street kids into valuable members of society in education sponsorship through the provision of formal education and vocational training opportunities as well as job orientation for about 700 students reintegrated into families before August 2020. We, as EDD, will empower youth and children to sustain themselves and their families. We still continue to support kids in that program and rely on your support.

Challenge

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.

Solution

Empower Develop Dignify support former street children experienced the hardship life on street , poor background of irresponsible parents who failed to nurture their children. EDD endeavors to assist these former street children under formal education or vocational training studies so that they can be empowered to transform their own lives, families and society. We know that once they are supported with education opportunities ,they will be valuable members of society .

Long-Term Impact

Educating a former street children not only to help them access to one of the child basic right every child deserve but it is also to produce the appropriate problem solver to the current generational root problems that push children to abandon their homes and go to live in street life or homelessness life.
