Rehabilitating all of those street children would require at least two years or more

Statistics from the Rwanda National Rehabilitation Service (NRS) show that 2882 children.

Bosenibamwe Aimé, Director General of NRS revealed these statistics in a meeting with Caritas Rwanda and its partners who fight for the wellbeing of street kids, held on 20th December 2018 in Malasa Hotel.

The meeting aimed at looking for solutions to decrease the number of street kids, sending them in rehabilitation centres before they go back in their families.

NRS statistics revealed that 55.6% of street children spend their whole lives on street, while 44.30% spend the day there and return to their families in the evening.

Among all of those children, 1629 have both of their parents. 202 have male parents, 490 have female parents, while 135 lost both of their parents.

Bosenibamwe says that all of those street kids must be rehabilated within one year.

This will be achieved in partnership with Caritas Kigali’s Abadacogora-Intwari and Rwanda National Rehabilitation Service

“After agreeing on the partnership with Caritas Kigali, we are committed to rehabilitate all of those street children in partnership with other government institutions in charge of rehabilitating street children” Bosenibamwe says.

The NRS works hand in hand with Caritas Kigali in providing shelter to street kids in Nyiragiseke Centre located in Rweru sector Bugesera district, as part of the therapy before rehabilitating them in their families. They also mobilize children in order to change their mindset and life style.

Rehabilitating all of those street children would require at least two years or more, according to Father Donatien Twizeyumuremyi, director of Caritas Kigali.

“Rehabilitating them should go hand in hand with preventing problems which push them to go back to street” Father Twizeyumuremyi says.

He adds that street kids’ families should first be living in peace to avoid problems that may push their children to go back to street.
