The Streets Ahead Children’s Centre Association in Rwanda has completed a capital project of a new residential centre. Named “The Pears Girls Centre,” this compound offers safe haven and support for street girls and young mothers in Kayonza, Rwanda.

The new centre functions as a temporary home which protects and educates the girls. Previously, they had been housed in rented accommodation. Now, they have a bespoke centre with dedicated bedrooms, cooking facilities, and a library, as well as showers and toilets.
