The direct beneficieries of the project are vulnerable young people in Kigali, Rwanda's capital. 6000 young people live and work on the streets and are at risk of exploitation, suffer from hunger, poverty, have no education and have very few opportunities to improve their situation. Centre Marembo offers these young people to find a way out of poverty through emotional support, education, training, apprenticeships and accommodation.
If young people can attend the centre they will gain information, training and support enabling them to learn skills and make informed decisions about their lives. Those living at the centre and attending school will gain secondary education.
The project currently serves around 100 young people each week and aims to reach many more in Kigali. By providing information and access to training and education, young people - who represent Rwanda's future - will be able to achieve their goals.
