Various non-governmental organizations and stakeholders have vowed to address the challenges facing underprivileged children

The Problem of Underprivileged Children Continues to Seek Solutions from All Institutions. On Friday, a family forum comprising girls' associations such as NUDOR, LWD, FAWE, and other various organizations gathered for discussions aimed at addressing the issue of underprivileged children being denied education opportunities due to lack of proper identification and health concerns that often result in them missing out on schooling.

These organizations and the family forum came together to find a comprehensive solution to the problem of underprivileged girls being denied education opportunities until they reach the legal age of adulthood in all regions of the country, as stated by Jean Claude Mwiseneza, the leader of the LWD project, that means "Let's move forward."

He said, "We aim to raise awareness about issues related to healthcare, but our awareness also involves understanding these issues so that those we engage with can comprehend the severity of the problems. What we help them with is understanding the problems they face because there are people who have problems but are not aware, and because they are not aware, they cannot address them."

Here, some of the approximately 3,000 participants who have been identified as having gender-related issues express that they have been allowed to continue building confidence in life.

Mrs. Edith GISAGARA, a village executive secretary of Rugarama in the Gatsibo district, appreciates the efforts of this organization in addressing the issue of denying education to girls.

She said, "Among the girls, there are also older ones, and the older ones talk to their friends, telling them the truth because there are things they have experienced, learned from, and when they share these experiences, they convene meetings, with the older girls leading them as if they were their mothers."

Mr. Jean Damacent Nsengiyumva, a member of NUDOR's executive committee, says that up to now, underprivileged girls have been given priority for education, but there is still much to be done.

He said, "Much has been done to help these children, not only in terms of consequences, but our priority is to ensure that consequences do not affect them. We have programs to teach them the skills they need to be self-reliant. Parents may not understand immediately, but when it happens, it is gratifying."

Although the issue of underprivileged children being denied education continues to be addressed by various institutions, including this Masenge project operating in the Eastern Province and Gasabo district, benefiting 1,000 participants, and where approximately 3,000 individuals with gender-related issues are supported by NUDOR, with 17 benefiting from the program last year.
