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.

OUR WORK - POVERTY REDUCTION

Rwanda’s latest data release in 2011 shows enormous improvement in the living standards of citizens over the past five years, and progress towards the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) - eight internationally-agreed goals aimed at reducing poverty and improving education, health, gender equality and environmental sustainability by 2015. Between 2006-2011, Rwanda has posted an average annual growth of real Gross Domestic Product (GDP) of 8.4 percent, driven mainly by higher productivity in the agricultural and industrial sectors.
