Rwanda closes orphanages to help reunite children with loving families

Rwanda orphanage

Following the 1994 genocide in Rwanda hundreds of thousands of children were left orphaned or abandoned.

To house the children, the country went from having four orphanages in 1979 to 34 in 2011.

Under a new plan Rwanda is closing the orphanages and finding permanent homes for the children.

Gail Walker has the story.
