Projects and partnerships
The Rwanda Scouts Association conducts several projects with different partners :
Search For Common Ground
In partnership with Search For Common Ground, the RSA implemented the project “Enhancing the contributions of civil society and local authorities to human rights, governance and development processes“.
In brief, the action aims to achieve lasting and sustainable change and improve the situation of target groups. The action’s target groups include : civil society organisations (CSOs), including youth-focused and youth-led CSOs; local and national government authorities; and community radio stations. The final beneficiaries will be the communities at-large in the districts of Ngoma, Gicumbi, Nyamasheke, and Ruhango. National level policy-makers, including both government and civil society, generally based in Kigali will also be final beneficiaries. The action is grounded by the overall objective to enhance the capacity and confidence of Rwandan civil society organisations to promote more inclusive, responsive, and transparent local-level governance.
