Plan has been operating in Rwanda since January 2007, helping poor children to access their rights to health, quality education and a sustainable future.
Rwanda’s children face great challenges as a result of poverty and historical circumstances such as the 1994 genocide, HIV and AIDS. Many children die from treatable and preventable diseases.
Plan currently works with 2,500 sponsored children, their families and communities in the Gatsibo district. We aim to open 4 more programme units within the next 5 years.

“I am happy because I have registered my child, now she will have rights to her father’s heritage and now her father cannot reject her,” Theophila, 22, the mother of an 8 month-old said in an interview in Bugesera, Rwanda.
