Indeed with your help and support. As well as All my Friends efforts and initiatives (online or off line).My plan with this event is to raise money to Economically Empower Rwandan Girls- Genocide Orphans Survivors who are still struggling to cope and overcome the Trauma while the circumstances forced them to raise their young siblings, by playing double roles (as Mother/ Parents and Siblings) because they don’t have parents or other relatives who survived the 1994 Genocide in Rwanda.
“For children like us who live in child headed households, when we have no parents, we live under very difficult conditions; life is very hard and there are times when we are actually even starving,” says Justine.
According to the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF), there are more than one million orphans in Rwanda. The highest proportion of these were orphaned as a result of the genocide in 1994, however since then, increasing numbers of children are being orphaned as a result of HIV/AIDS.
It is common to see older children raising younger ones by themselves in post-genocide Rwanda today. After the genocide, Rwanda had among the highest proportions of child-headed families in the world — some 42,000 households struggling to raise an estimated 101,000 children.
Many of these children do not go to school or eat regularly. Some, as a result of the widespread rape during the genocide and the increased spread of HIV/AIDs, are now falling ill themselves. Many are at risk of exploitation and abuse. It is a generation that has lost its childhood and whose future is very much at risk
