ActionAid Rwanda (AAR) is a Country Program of ActionAid International, a global federation committed to end poverty and injustice. ActionAid Rwanda works with rural communities to challenge the root causes of poverty, build their skills and increase their knowledge to identify solutions for lasting change impacting their lives.
In the areas of education, ActionAid Rwanda has been promoting the quality of public education for girls and boys and children and youth as drivers of change, and currently continues promoting rights in school through working with school clubs such as the anti-GBV & SRHR clubs among others.
AAR also promotes girls’ education through girls’ camps and establishing girls’ rooms in schools to create a safe space for girls during their menstrual cycle, and to give them space to interact with school matrons, learn about SRHR and express their concerns as girls, with a goal of keeping girls in schools as well.
AAR also intervenes in Early Childhood Development by setting up model ECD centers, and supporting caregivers. ECDs gives time to women for the productive to reduce unpaid care work.
