Help a Child (Red een Kind) is an international NGO based in the Netherlands that works in several countries throughout Africa and Asia. Help a Child’s mandate is to build the resilience of children, families, and communities to affect change in their context. Children are at the heart of the organization’s Theory of Change and its vision is for all children to be healthy and strong, educated for life, morally balanced and socially equipped. To work towards this aim, HaC Rwanda works across five districts (Bugesera, Rwamagana, Rulindo, Rubavu and Rusizi) and supports local NGO partners to carry out holistic, community-based interventions. Our interventions are clustered in 4 result areas: 1) early childhood development and education, 2) basic education, 3) technical vocational and agri-business training for youth employment, and 4) self-help group approach to improving the resilience of communities.

Work started in Rwanda in 2008 with local partners African Evangelistic Enterprise (AEE), Eglise Presbyterienne au Rwanda (EPR), and Bamporeze. In 2012, HaC opened an office in Kigali and registered as NGO operating in Rwanda under Reg. 203/DGI&E/12. Apart from the child-centered community development interventions HaC is carrying out, HaC is also involved in implementing activities at national level aimed at building capacity and strengthening systems related to early childhood development and youth employment. Specifically in the education sector, we implemented a DFID funded Innovations for Education project on Active Learning Methods between 2013-2015. Additionally, from late 2015 to date, we have supported the University Rwanda College Education to develop competency based curriculum (CBC) for Teacher Training Colleges (TTC) for the Early Childhood and Lower primary option, to align with the CBC recently introduced in primary schools.
