The administration of Rukara sector in Kayonza district in cooperation with the World Vision Organisation has started a program of sensitizing parents to stop forcing their children do hard work which is inappropriate to their age
This sensitization started on the 31st.July.2012 and it will last for only a week as the administration council of this sector explained.
The main objective of this sensitization is to make parents know the effects of hard work to their children as it delays the functioning of their brains which makes them dull in schools.
In Kayonza district, many parents use their children for hard labour such as working in mining especially in Rwinkwavu sites and making their children miss schools to do petty trading which results into some of them dropping out of it completely.
Appolon Mwumvaneza the coordinator of World vision Rukara branch said that though there are expected punishments for such parents, they are not enough and that is why they opted for sensitization for them to know the dangers they are exposing their children to instead of doing it afraid of the law.
Parents will be given lessons on the dangers of hard labour on the children and how they can protect their children any kind of abuse and violence.

World Vision has embarked on implementing its “kwigisha abaturage iziko” program, in order to fight malnutrition.
World vision in Rukara sector Kayonza district is going to put into place its program “Kwigisha abaturage iziko” whereby families with malnourished children will be gathering to learn preparing well balanced meals after every 12 days.
Appolon Mwumvaneza World vision representative in Rukara sector justifies “Residents have food but consider it to be for the poor. Once they are taught how to prepare balanced diet from this food, they will be able to fight malnutrition than they had never imagined.”
While there are some children in the different parts of the country, Dr. Agnes Binagwaho Minister of health responds that it does not mean there is famine in Rwanda but only some residents who do not know how to prepare balanced foods from the food they have.
While residents in various parts of the country think that the poor cannot have balanced diets, nutritionists confirm that a good diet is not prepared from expensive foods only.
Rukara sector residents hope that after attending “Kwigisha abaturage iziko”, they will be able to prepare balanced foods for children and teach their neighbors.
