Rebuilding families across Rwanda

Uyisenga Ni Imanzi was established in 2002 in response to the high number of children and young adults who became orphans and heads of their households as a result of the Rwandan genocide and HIV/AIDS.

Today Uyisenga Ni Imanzi carries out holistic, community-based interventions to help create protective and caring environments for children and young people. Their aim is to build the resilience of children, youth, families and communities and to affect change for sustainable development.

Approach

Uyisenga Ni Imanzi advocates for the rights of children, including those who are head of their households, across Rwanda.

The organisation offers many different types of support such as mental health care, support to achieve economic sustainability through small business activities, and funds for education and materials for children to attend school. They have also been able to build homes for some to allow them to reconstruct the families that were previously scattered across orphanages and foster homes.

Uyisenga Ni Imanzi works very closely with government and other local and international organisations to achieve greater impact and create lasting change for children and families.

The harm caused by inadequate care is particularly acute for very young children, and therefore policy-makers and practitioners in the child protection and social protection fields must make particular joint efforts to improve the care of such children.
