GNPDR believes that in many places, more than one type of assistance is needed to help a community become sustainable. We want to promote improved livelihoods through formal, informal, and vocational education for sustainable development. GNPDR believes that education makes a world of difference. Education is the key to tackling poverty, improving health and building brighter futures. Through education and training individuals use skills to transform their own lives and communities; therefore, we want to help marginalized groups of people transform their lives through education.
GNPDR has helped genocide widows to regain hope by initiating Hope project aiming at improving livelihoods and food security. Hope project has main three wings: Chicken farm, water supply, and irrigation for food security. The project is designed to contribute to increased income and improved livelihood, food security, and natural resource management through demonstrating the efficiency of solar-powered irrigation and organic manures in increasing food productivity and mitigating the climate change variability.
Comfort Primary School:
GNPDR supported a catch-up school for ex-street kids since its inception in 2007. They helped to find foster families for many children living on the streets and then admitted them to the catch-up center where they would spend 3 years catching up with the education before transitioning to mainstream schools.
Now the catch-up school has become a mainstream school itself – Comfort Primary School. Street children are still admitted, as well as other children from very vulnerable backgrounds. As with all primary schools, parental support regarding school fees is expected, which can prove an insurmountable challenge for some of the children. GNPDR is very grateful for any donations to help offset this finance gap.
