ActionAid Rwanda works with rural communities to challenge the root causes of poverty, build their skills and increase their knowledge to identify solutions for lasting change impacting their lives. AAR has a focus on women and girls issues for eradication of poverty and injustice.
AAR's main objective is to connect and support people living in poverty and to further human rights as the best ways to challenge governments and eradicate poverty and injustice. AAR is supporting people living in poverty to have access to sustainable agriculture, secure livelihood alternatives and build resilience to natural disasters through preparedness, mitigation and response to risks. Plus, AAR works to improve the quality of public education for girls and boys equally on a basis of equality, and to support children and youth to become drivers of change in their communities. Finally, AAR's last objective is to empower women and girls to build social and economic alternatives that enable them to break the cycle of poverty and violence and to have control over their own bodies.
