Save the Children

Save the children started work in Rwanda in 1994, helping trace parents or relatives of children who had become separated from their families in the genocide and we successfully reunited 40,000 children with family members.

Currently we are…

  • Providing Early Childhood Care and Development (ECCD) opportunities to more than 2,800 children in twenty-eight ECCD centres each year, benefitting around 11,200 siblings;
  • Improving access to good quality child and maternal healthcare for 700,000 people;
  • Reaching 50,000 parents and community members through community-based child protection networks to ensure children are safe from abuse and exploitation;
  • Responding to an emergency influx of refugees from DRC by setting up child friendly spaces in two refugee camps, and establishing child protection committees with the refugee community;
  • Currently setting up the first stages of a £10m innovative Education Signature Programme to support improved literacy for children aged 0-9.
