|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.
|The Global Girlhood Report||Even before the COVID-19 crisis hit, progress for girls on some issues was under threat. While girls’ health, nutrition and access to education have improved over the last 25 years, even before the pandemic hit, progress to end child marriage and reduce adolescent pregnancy had slowed to a halt. Now, with reports of gender-based violence increasing across the world,1 it is estimated that 9.7 million children may never return to school post‑COVID.2 And with the number of children living in poverty estimated to climb by around 100 million,3 for girls today, gender equality feels further from reach than ever.||05/10/2020||3MB|

|Investment in Children Programme Brief||In 2013, Save the Children began implementing Child Rights Governance (CRG) activities in Rwanda. A CRG preliminary analysis highlighted that while policies and strategic plans for children were in place, their implementation was impeded by limited budgetary allocations. Hence the need for a comprehensive public finance analysis to determine exact budget allocations and assess Rwanda’s Investment in Children (IiC) footprint. An in-depth IiC analysis was commissioned in order to gather evidence on progress, challenges and opportunities for Save the Children to improve IiC in Rwanda.||27/07/2016||1MB|
