CAVAP Self-Help Groups

The local Rwandan NGO AEE Rwanda implemented self-help groups in Rwanda's Eastern province, funded by the German Bundesministerium für wirtschaftliche Zusammenarbeit (BMZ) and Kindernothilfe (KNH).

These photos are from profiles of four families whose futures have been transformed through their self-help groups. The images were included in reports to the funding institutions, AEE Rwanda information brochures, and the AEE Rwanda annual report.

Two large love hearts are painted on the walls either side of her front door. Regina, 38, was diagnosed with HIV in 2001 when pregnant with her third child, her infection resulting from a 1996 sexual assault. Although she lost her third child, her husband and their two children do not carry the virus. From the time she was diagnosed, her husband was fully supportive and she looks forward to a long life.
