Rwanda: Families earn their own school fees
The Family Business for Education (FBE) program is designed to empower vulnerable Rwandan families and take control of their income through a sustainable and profitable business. In addition, it encourages families to save and use this money to send their children to school.
This acclaimed innovative family business concept is transforming families and communities.
Why this project partner
Uyisenga ni Imanzi (UNM) has been committed to vulnerable children in Rwanda since 2002. It is a locally registered non-profit organization (NGO) that receives support from an umbrella worldwide organization Street Child in their approach to the rehabilitation of street children.
Street Child focuses on education, child protection and income enhancement for families. Projects are carried out through local partner organizations. The most disadvantaged children are selected, helped to find a safe home base and to get them (back) to school by helping the families to create an income. Net4kids and Street Child both believe that sustainability should be central to the projects and we jointly strive for impact in the longer term.
