Opportunities for Butare’s street children
Following the genocide, war and displacement there were thousands of street children in Rwanda. Many lost parents and siblings. This is why places such as the youth centre in Butare are so important. It provides around 350 children with a social meeting place and a solid education. Through financial support CHILDREN´S RELIEF – Hilfe für Kinder in Not e. V. looks after the renovation of the buildings as well as the training of the young people as carpenters, tailors, bricklayers, metal workers or farmers. Providing them with their first set of tools gives them a good start into their working lives.
