KCA. - Keep a Child Alive

Take Action

WE-ACTx for Hope, Kigali, Rwanda

When Keep a Child Alive became involved with WE-ACTx (Women’s Equity in Access to Care and Treatment), the effects of the 1994 genocide that swept across Rwanda were still very much evident - WE-ACTx providing medical care for displaced women and children, including many rape survivors who contracted HIV as a result of the violent attacks.

A decade since its founding, WE-ACTx has grown. Beyond providing high quality HIV care and treatment, WE-ACTx is set apart by their intensive psychosocial and mental health services. They also lead the way in Rwanda in services for youth, providing a range of skills-training and income-generating activities, as well as youth and peer education programs.
