Refugee children, adolescents and youth enhance their resilience
Hear from the young refugees who are sexual health educators, starting businesses, saving for the future and becoming champions of gender equality.
Plan International is an independent development and humanitarian organisation that advances children’s rights and equality for girls. We believe in the power and potential of every child but know this is often suppressed by poverty, violence, exclusion and discrimination. And it is girls who are most affected.
Plan International has been operating in Rwanda since 2007 to change gender and social norms as well as policies that hold children back from reaching their potential.
Our priorities include:
Working together with children, young people, supporters and partners, we strive for a just world, tackling the root causes of the challenges girls and vulnerable children face. We support children’s rights from birth until they reach adulthood and we enable children to prepare for and respond to crises and adversity.
We are present at national and local levels with a focus on the districts of Bugesera, Gatsibo and Nyaruguru. We also work in 6 refugee camps across the country.
Our programmes tackle the root causes of the challenges and inequalities that children and young girls face.
We won’t stop until we are all equal.
