Rwanda continues to recover from the genocide that ripped the country apart in the mid-1990s. While progress in combating poverty has been made in recent years, many families continue to depend on farming and struggle to grow enough food to survive.

We're helping poor families to grow more food and earn an income. Following the recent political unrest in Burundi, we're also giving emergency food aid to women, children and the elderly in refugee camps close to the border. We’re working with the Catholic and Anglican churches to stop sexual violence against women by raising awareness in communities of women’s rights, human rights law and also lobbying government to take action.

For the minority Batawa community who are often discriminated against we’re helping their children go to school, providing vocational training, as well as ensuring they know their rights under Rwandan law.
