Press Release: Rwandan men should be more involved in parenting, says Save the Children

Rwandan women continue to bear the burden of most aspects of childcare, despite male involvement being essential for early childhood development, according to a new report launched in February 2021 by child-rights agency Save the Children.

The new report reveals that despite some awareness raising in Rwanda of the importance of men being more engaged in children’s lives, gender norms which encourage men to engage in paid work while women stay at home continue to prevail.
