The Ministry of Gender and Family Promotion in the Prime Minister’s Office on Wednesday picked up 330 kids from Kigali streets and enrolled them on a two-week rehabilitation solidarity camp (ingando).
According to the minister, Dr Jeanne d’Arc Mujawamariya, the street children will attend the solidarity camp then they will be facilitated to go back to school.
She said the children will be taught a number of subjects that will include human rights values and the history of Rwanda.
"At the end of the solidarity camp, the ministry will identify those who can be taken back to primary or technical schools and others will get the opportunity join catch-up classes for a while before sitting for primary leaving examinations," she noted.
