|Rwanda and Burundi Country Office Newsletter, November 2023||On September 8th, 2023, in partnership with the Ministry of Education, Save the Children launched a Zero-Out-of-School Children project under the fund of the Global Education Above All (EAA) Foundation.
Zero-Out-of-School Children project will be implemented in all districts across Rwanda, and it aims at providing quality primary education to all remaining out-of-school children (OOSC) in Rwanda. The newly launched joint project will engage and empower communities as advocates and supporters. Data will be collected and methods enhanced to find and identify children who are out of school, including in remote areas of Rwanda.
|Rwanda & Burundi Country Ooffice Newsletter- Jan to Jun 2023||Save the Children is grateful for the support from the Government of Rwanda, UNHCR and other donors such as BPRM, UNFPA and the Embassy of Japan who generously supported our work in humanitarian settings.
Since January 2023, SC was chosen by UNHCR as the leading implementing partner for health and nutrition in all refugee camps, including Kigeme, Kiziba, Mahama, Mugombwa and Nyabiheke, and transit centres. Child Protection and Gender-Based Violence were also expanded to cover the entire Mahama Refugee Camp and other locations like urban settings and Gashora ETM.
|Rwanda and Burundi Country Office, Newsletter for 2022||2022 has been a big year for Save the Children Rwanda and Burundi. We did whatever it took to improve the lives of children and their families in Rwanda and Burundi.
Because of the support of our partners and donors, Save the Children was commissioned by UNHCR as its 2023 project implementing partner in Rwanda and Burundi. Because of this, we will expand our programs nationally, around health and nutrition, child protection, gender-based violence, and complementary pathways to provide skilled refugees with job opportunities.
Through our child protection interventions in Mahama Refugee Camp, we reached 18,458 children.
In Burundi, as well as becoming UNHCR partner of choice nationally, we also started new World Bank and EU contracts which will reach thousands of gender based violence survivors and prevent thousands more cases.
Under Education, we trained 5,800 pre-primary teachers and 4,322 school leaders in play-based and age-appropriate activities.
Kumwe Hub, our innovation and impact investment Hub, has taken off with a new team, new funding partners, and new projects. 6 child-focused businesses have received loans amounting to $63,300 through Ongezea Loans Fund. 14 Rwandan businesses working with different ASRH themes were awarded grants through our Ndashinganye Grants, and a daycare for entrepreneur mothers was established in Mahama Refugee Camp.
