AGASARO 4 LOVE Campaign is a project started since 2018 by a nonprofit children’s organization titled “One Help One Direction Ihumure” which it is aimed at raising funds or other items that can be used to change the life of children on street situation with their parents and the main objective is to make the community be aware of the love and care that it owes the children in need.
It is obvious that kids on street situation have always been subject of persistent abuse, neglect, and exploitation. Their future is still in doubt due to many factors namely: lack of parental control and care, they also suffer from disease, family breakdown and conflict; malnutrition and the deprivation of their basic rights.
The Government of Rwanda has been trying hardly to respond to the problem facing children on street situation. Many policies have been implemented to keep on track with building a promising future for children on street situation, the progress is honestly being made but the general public should also share the common sense of the responsibility and understand the concept of that ‘’It takes a whole village to raise a child’’.
In 2016 our organization has started a weekly program titled “Smile Sunday Program” to help and care for kids on street situations, where we bring children in or out street with an objectives to know how they live and reintegrate in the community and with their families. Currently, we have 50 children we care for and whom are categorized there is two different categories. Children who has been reintegrated in their families and those ones who are still in the process of being reintegrated.
Idea for “Agasaro 4 Love” campaign came right after spending one year and half with kids in our program. Sharing stories, laughter and amity in both emotional and physical perspective. However, there was still need of creating a transitional center with the provision of basic tools within the program. Training families for basic project skills with the aim of sustaining those initiated programs.
This year of 2019, we need to raise 5.000 € through different strategies. Money will be raised by selling the bracelets and agenda book done by kids themselves, t-shirts ; children portrait and a documentary film’s DVD. In addition to that individuals, institutions and charity organizations may directly donate money or other educational items and clothing and the money will come to support our program but specifically the social enterprise of children’s parents called “Family Social Enterprises Ltd”.
We cannot do this initiative without your generosity. We truly believe that collective participation will change the lives of children in Rwanda. We call for this cause and we are optimistically believed that we shall achieve our objectives and goals.
