Success in Rwanda
Africare/Rwanda is known for being a long-lasting development partner of the Rwandan people through the use of multi-faceted approaches to increasing community capacity in generating local solutions to development issues.
Africare is currently implementing the Ibyiringiro Project, which employs an integrated approach to providing food security and nutrition services for people living with HIV & AIDS. In partnership with Catholic Relief Services, this project has reached more than 1,900 households in total. More than 7,200 beneficiaries have received HIV prevention, care and support services; more than 4,350 orphans and vulnerable children have received social support services; and approximately 32,000 community members have participated in HIV & AIDS prevention and behavior change interventions through community mobile cinema. More than 2,560 beneficiaries have received food and nutrition services. Sixty-nine co-operatives were formed and supported in starting income-generating activities, and more than 1,270 women are now involved in agricultural savings and loans schemes that have raised over $50,000 in local investment capital for microenterprise development.
