This programme supports families to be able to take good care of children from their own biological settings.
Family Strengthening programmes aim to prevent children from losing care of their capacity to protect and care for their children and strengthening the safety nets for vulnerable children and their families within the community. Family Strengthening Programmes-Rwanda started in 2005.
The Best place for children to grow is within their biological family. Caregivers are responsible for the development of their children communities are a direct source of support for the children and their families. The goal of development is the realization of human rights.
Children who are risk of losing parental care are the focus of our programmes. Children are viewed as being at risk of losing parental care of their family when basic material, emotional, health and educational needs are being neglected or there are abused because their caregivers lack the capacity or commitment to adequately care for their children.
Through the Family Strengthening programmes, we provide a range of services to support the families and communities assume their responsibility to protect and care for their children; as well as to encourage and support the government and other duty bearer to meet their obligations to respect, protect and fulfill the rights of children.
