Martine Umulisa
Kaami Arts, Rwanda
In Rwanda, there are an estimated 3,000 street children facing hunger, drug abuse and violence. To survive, they are forced to beg, steal or prostitute themselves. Some take drugs to forget their problems. Three years ago, Rwandan artist Martine Umulisa helped set up a theatre for street children. Through arts, youngsters with psychological trauma can regain confidence and break the cycle of abuse.

About Child 10
Sophie Stenbeck Family Foundation and Reach for Change have founded the Child 10 Award to highlight, support and connect bold leaders of grassroots organizations that work with innovative solutions to address urgent and pressing issues for children. Every year since 2014, the Child 10 Awardees meet in Stockholm for the Child 10 Summit, an exceptional opportunity for them to share best practices and to build on collective knowledge and experience to continue and scale their work for children.
