With our Childcare and Development program, we offer a brighter future to children in Rwanda
We make school fees sponsorship available so that children from disadvantaged families can escape the vicious cycle.
A whole year of education for a child in primary school often costs only around 100€ and in secondary school around 250€ per year. Without the basic knowledge taught in primary education, children have no chance of facing a different future than their parents. This means only being able to live from subsistence agriculture and having no option for a better life.
Over 80% of a child’s brain is formed in the first 1000 days. Parents are often forced to work, leaving babies with their siblings or so-called ECD-Centers. These are often overcrowded, and lacking toys, nutrition, equipment, and trained personnel. We fight these challenges, by providing ECD-Centers with the necessary equipment and offering trainings for the caretakers.
