Terms of Reference

Background
For over 90 years, Save the Children has been making a difference in children's lives in more than 120 countries. We are the world's largest independent child rights organisation, underpinned by a vision in a world in which every child attains the right to survival, protection, develo
pment and participation. Our mission to inspire breakthroughs in the way the world treats children, and to achieve immediate and lasting change in their lives.
Accountability for children’s rights project in Rwanda
With support from the European Union, Save the Children is strengthening the culture of dialogue on children issues, legislations, and policy and budget dialogues between the Government of Rwanda, Civil Society and children themselves.
General Comment 5 of 2003 of the Committee on the Rights of the Child dealing with “General Measures of Implementation of the Convention” outlines a number of measures such as legislative, policy, institutional, budgetary and statistical actions which countries must undertake for the effective implementation of the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC). This is founded on states responsibility to protect, respect and fulfil children’s rights born out of states’ ratification of or accession to the CRC.
In the same framework, Rwanda has put in place a number of policies that caters for children rights issues which include the Integrated Child Rights Policy (ICRP).
While the Rwanda’s Vision 2020 seeks to fundamentally transform Rwanda into a middle-income country by the year 2020 and as the country invests efforts towards the achievement of the global Sustainable Development Goals, it is essential for child focused Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) and children themselves to work hand in hand with the Rwandan Government to ensure that children’s rights are realized and not left behind.
