How has Rwanda's Cultural Values and Ethic helped in the upbringing of the Next Generation of Rwanda?
Before the genocide, Rwanda's had no recode of street kids in any way for kids like in any other society are supposed to be brought up under the care of their parents or immediate relatives. But the genocide shattered family bonds living many children orphaned, abused and at the mercy of the on lookers. Unlike her neighbors, Rwanda took a strong stand in eradicating them (Street Kids) from the street. The implementation of this was done by setting up a large orphanage were these kids were raised to be the next Rwandan leaders. As we speak Rwanda is one of the few countries in Africa whose streets have no roaming dirty kinds and beggars for it is of a bad reputation for all other members of the family from which the beggar of the street kid is from.
And Rwanda being a small country in size, it is easy to keep a close watch on each family. It is also violates the cultural values for any child to stay alone away (For example Rent an apartment or a house) from the rest of the family members and if you do it you are given a serious warning from your relative. This is a common mistake that is always done by Rwandese that have returned to the country especially if they were not born in or rose up in the country.
