Inshuti z'UmuryangoDuring the week of March 10, 2016, USAID Twiyubake supported MIGEPROF in establishing the Inshuti z’Umuryango structure in 10 districts by mobilizing local authorities and training village chiefs on responsibilities, election, and reporting requirements of the program.

Inshuti z’Umurayango (Friends of the Family) are two community-based child and family protection volunteers, one man and one women. Their responsibilities include promoting child rights, protecting children from violence, abuse, and exploitation, mobilizing against early pregnancies and school drop outs, and promoting equal rights of children with disabilities.

Moreover, Inshuti z’Umuryango will protect children from being separated from their families and will work on returning lost children to their families. Village residents elected the best suited candidates for this position on Saturday of the same week after the community work. Inshuti z’Umuryango will be working in the villages reporting to the village chief and to their representative in the cell and sector, up to the district, which will follow up on all reports for an inclusive child protection system.
