Save the Children has been working in Rwanda since 1994. In the immediate aftermath of the genocide, Save the Children helped trace parents or relatives of thousands of children who had become separated from their families. Since then, Save the Children has been working in partnership with the government and local stakeholders to promote a bright future for Rwanda’s children.
Currently Save the Children is working with the Education sector through its Education Signature Programme, Advancing the Right to Read in Rwanda, with the aim to contribute in addressing the global crisis in learning by providing a continuum of services for children aged from zero to nine years, focused on supporting emergent and early-grade literacy to ensure all children leave school able to read.
Through the Child protection and child rights governance program, Save the Children aims at creating violence free schools and communities. This is achieved through training and mentoring of teachers, parents and teacher-parents committees on positive discipline in everyday teaching as well as advocating for the full legal prohibition of physical and humiliating punishment in all settings.
