Plan International is an independent development and humanitarian organisation that advances children’s rights and equality for girls.Working together with children, young people, our supporters and partners, we strive for a just world, tackling the root causes of the challenges facing girls and all vulnerable children. We support children’s rights from birth until they reach adulthood. We drive changes in practice and policy at local, national and global levels using our reach, experience and knowledge. We have been building powerful partnerships for children for over 75years, and are now active in more than 70 countries.


  1. Rationale

Since 2007, Plan International enrolled 10,000 sponsored children in the communities of Gatsibo District. As time went, these Sponsored Children at the age of 18 years were graduated from sponsorship. Currently, Gatsibo Program Area has 625 SC (154 boys and 471 girls) graduated from the program.

It is from this background that children raised their concerns through Plan’s Community meetings under APPR (Annual Participatory Progress Review, 2017), which is one of the space to discuss on their issues and finding solutions together. They came about to realize that their poverty and other problems are caused by small lands, family size without control, family conflicts, lack of income in their family to help them going to school, child labor, laziness and the use of drugs.

Plan International Rwanda, through VSLA project, has come to address these issues of economic crisis by empowering Graduated/sponsored youth to boost their welfare through the creation of Savings Groups, Capacity building of VSLA members on different topics including entrepreneurship, goat rearing and supporting members with small livestock                          

  1. Objectives of the project:

The overall objective of this project is to increase the Economic capacity of 1,525 members including 625 SCs graduated from the sponsorship program and their families (614 males and 911 females) in 3 sectors of Murambi, Kiziguro and Rwimbogo. These people were facilitated to form functional VSLAs and got trained. In addition to the share and savings they do within VSLA, they rely on agriculture which are not productive because of climate change and sometimes lack of manure. After some consultative meetings we have realized that providing them with small livestock can be one of the strategies to increase their economic capacity because livestock play a big role for poor households as it serves as income diversification and provide manure for the improved agriculture production

Plan International Rwanda is inviting recognized People by RDB as suppliers of livestock to submit their proposals.
