Plan International has been advancing children’s rights in Rwanda since 2007. Throughout our development and humanitarian work, we create long-term change in the lives of the most vulnerable children, especially girls.
All of our work adheres to global development and humanitarian standards and transforms attitudes about what girls are capable of.
We work in the districts of Bugesera, Nyaruguru, Gatisbo, Ngororero, Rutsiro, Nyamagabe, Ngoma, Karongi, Kayonza, Nyamasheke, Nyabihu, Gicumbi, and Kirehe. We also work in 6 refugee camps across the country.
Our key areas of work are:
- Keeping children safe,
- Quality, inclusive education,
- Early childhood development,
- Youth economic security,
- Responding to emergencies.
