The study assesses the significant and distinctive needs of older people, the way churches can respond to those social, economic, psychological and spiritual needs, and aspects of Rwanda’s state social protection and health provision.

It also looks at how Rwanda’s emerging landscape of care and support is changing and how Tearfund’s models and tools, such as church and community mobilisation (CCM), could provide appropriate recognition of and response to the needs of older people.
