Partners (35)

Partnership is central to CARE's work in Rwanda, and we greatly value our strategic partnerships with key Government institutions, UN agencies, research instiutions and private sector actors, as well as with civil scoiety. CARE has an extensive network of local partner NGOs in Rwanda, with whom we have worked over several years to develop shared capacities in effective program delivery, as well as strategic leadership and accountability. During 2012, CARE Rwanda transformed its approach to partnership.

The Government of Rwanda (GoR) has initiated a broad economic reform agenda from which ambitious but achievable targets have been set for growth and poverty reduction. One of the key pillars of Rwanda’s Vision 2020 is “private sector-led development”, spearheaded by competitiveness and entrepreneurship.

The development of the private sector is not only essential for economic growth but also ensures the emergence of a productive middle class of entrepreneurs as part of a service and knowledge-based economy. Therefore, the Ministry of Trade and Industry (MINICOM) has summarized its vision, mission and interventions to achieve this objective. (Referenced from the Ministry of Trade and Industry website).
