Education is a fundamental human right and an essential tool to ensure that all Rwandese citizens - women and men, girls and boys - realise their full potential.  The development of human resources is one of the principal factors in achieving sustainable economic and social development.  Education and training has been considered as a critical lynchpin to achieve development and poverty reduction in Rwanda.

A major part of CARE Rwanda's work is based in education and the education sector. Therefore, Rwanda's Ministry of Education and it's education sector's policy helps promote the ideals and vision that CARE Rwanda has for their programs.

Based on the UN's definition of Gender-Based Violence, the Rwandan National Policy on Gender Based-Violence illustrates the categories of GBV as economic violence, physical violence, sexual violence, and psychological violence. Therefore, gender-based violence should be seen as physical, sexual, emotional or social harm or abuse directed against a person because of his or her gender role in a given society. The policy helps counteract GBV through legislation and awareness. Through this, CARE Rwanda receives support from the government in order to uplift vulnerable women.
