As of June 2020, the Rwanda network for Community-led Development is currently in formation. The country of Rwanda has a growing number of local organizations and country offices of international NGOs that are exploring the value and potential of a chapter in their country. The government of Rwanda has many strong and far reaching programs, including a focus on who is most vulnerable.
The potential for a community-led development forum proposes to engage with the government to ensure government efforts to reach communities most in need are vibrant and timely–which is especially critical in a rapidly-changing COVID world. The Forum also envisions creating and testing innovations in community-led development which can help inform government and other stakeholders as to how to foster sustainable development that enables dignity, voice, and agency.
