The Anglican Church in Rwanda has launched a new programme to bring down the rate of abuse and violence against children.
The new programme called “Neighbour’s Eye” is intended to consolidate the efforts of a separate child protection programme initiated by the First Lady’s Office earlier in the year called the “Treat Every Child as Your Own” project.
According to Manasseh Gahima, administrator for Gahini Diocese in Kayonza district, the main aim of the programme is “to make every person a watchdog of his/her neighbour and fight against anything that would violate the rights and welfare of children and neighbours”. the rest
