by Centre Marembo organisation Vetted since 2017

Summary

The Centre Marembo is not just the only residential place of refuge for abused street girls and teen/pre-teen mothers in Rwanda. It is a holistic institution for successful rehabilitation and reintegration. We combat the problems of homelessness, malnutrition, unemployment, trauma and drug addiction through our many services, which have turned around the lives of hundreds of girls and their infant babies so far.

Challenge

Women and girls face particular problems living on the streets of Kigali City. Domestic labor, prostitution and drug addiction leave girls vulnerable to abuse, infection and childhood pregnancy. Kicked out of their homes, jobs or schools as a result of their situation they, and ultimately their babies, struggle to survive and have no opportunity to live. It is this that continues the cycle of violence faced by both street girls and street boys, and so it is here that the problem must be tackled

Solution

Our 4 pillared approach: 1)Health and Well-being- Safe homes and specialized nutrition to cover the girls basic needs. 2)Education-Formal education covered to as high a level as our beneficiaries can attain. Also providing many vocational education courses. 3)Empowerment-Courses for the girls to know their rights and resources to give control over their own bodies, enabling them to live reintegrated. 4)Reintegration: A fully rehabilitated individual will be found a suitable home and employment.

Long-Term Impact

There will be no children on the streets and no tolerance towards any form of children's rights violation.
