RULP advocates for equal rights, opportunities, and dignified lives for people with Short Stature.

about us

Breaking Barriers, Building Futures

Rwanda Union of Little People (RULP) was established as a civil society organization in August, 2015 after more discussion with its members on challenges encountered in their daily life. There is very low education level and extreme poverty among little people in Rwanda; this is further exacerbated by prevailing social stigma and cultural attitudes. RULP advocates on behalf of its members for equal rights for people with Short Stature.

Our Mission

Our mission is to enable people with Short Stature to live independently and actively participate in society through skills development, capacity building, and social integration.
