Rwanda Chapter

Small and landlocked, Rwanda is hilly and fertile with a population of about 13 million people (2020). Known for its breathtaking scenery and warm, friendly people offer unique experience in one of the most remarkable countries in the world. Rwanda is often referred to as the “land of a thousand hills”. The capital city is Kigali, located in the Centre of the country.

The political, social and economic context of Rwanda is profoundly affected by its past dark history of colonization which brought ethnic division among one people and led to the several conflicts at the extend of reaching the final plan to exterminate one group of Rwandan (Tutsi) in 1994 genocide against tutsi, and the country continues to deal with the consequences up to date.

To address these issues there is a need for a holistic approach which start in the family to the community. It is important to understand the root causes of the problems each family members have gone through so as to tackle adequately the real issue.

Therefore, as we provide solutions to the physical appearances of the problem we need to ensure that we deal with psychological issues.

Shelter Them Batarure has dealt with vulnerable children for a while and has learned that most of the problems they face are the results of their families history. Shelter Them has come up with a strategy to assist the children in providing quality of education with all connected services which go with it, while dealing with the mental health of their parents at the same time providing an emergency support.

 

Embracing their potential to be self reliant is what we want for them. To see people come from extreme poverty to life full of joy, children succeeding at school and parents now being able to care and feed them is amazing to see.  These are our 4 key areas that we believe has and will continue to help...
