Reintegrating Children with Disabilities in Rwanda

UNICEF, Changing the Way We Care, Republic of Rwanda National Child Development Agency

In 2019, with UNICEF’s support, the Government of Rwanda began the final phase of the Tubarerere Mu Muryango Programme/Let’s Raise Children in families care reform programme that aimed to see the end of large-scale residential care in the country. This last phase of the programme focused on returning children with disabilities in residential care to their families or placing them in foster care. 

This case study documents the story of David's reintegration from a residential care home for children with disabilities in Rwanda to kinship care with his grandparents.

This document has been produced as part of the regional learning platform on care in Eastern and Southern Africa. The platform and its corresponding documentation

were planned and conceptualised by UNICEF Eastern and Southern African Regional Office (ESARO) and Changing the Way We CareSM (CTWWC).
