Our Projects

Poverty Reduction

  • Joint Youth Program Project in Rwanda

    The overall objective of the JYP is to create a conducive environment that advocates for the protection of youth rights and that helps to meet youth’s basic needs and to expand their opportunities to reach their full potential

  • Building Inclusive Financial Sector in Rwanda ( BIFSIR)

    The programme aims at contributing to capacity building of the various stakeholders at the macro, meso and micro levels, with a view of supporting the development of sustainable, quality and diversified financial services that are accessible to the less advantaged Rwanda, both in rural and in urban areas, and to improve the economic and social status.

  • Support Project for the Rwanda Integrated Development Initiative

    This project aims to support the Government of Rwanda—particularly the Ministry of local Government —to strengthen the National Human Settlement Policy and Strategy in aspects related to environment management, local governance enhancement and technology-driven local productivity. The expected result of this would be to transform the Rwanda human settlement model, in a way that accelerates the achievement of all MDGs and EDPRS targets, including drastic reductions in population growth, maternal and neonatal deaths.

  • Support to Special Activities through Evidence-Based Policy Research and Advocacy in Support of MDG Initiatives in Rwanda

    The overall objective of the project is to support the Government of Rwanda’s emerging crosscutting initiatives and promote advocacy on strategic development issues through the production and dissemination of key national documents.

  • Support to the establishment of the Rwanda Peace Academy (RPA)

    The Rwanda Peace Academy, an initiative of the Government of Rwanda, supported by the Government of Japan through the United Nations Development Programme, aims to respond to the strong need for sustainable peacebuilding in Africa based on the complexity of conflicts in Africa where standard international approaches, such as short-term stabilization missions by external parties, may succeed in stemming violence temporarily, but fail to consolidate into a durable and lasting peace
