COPORWA-NPA PARTNERSHIP (2020-2024)
- PROJECT TITLE: PUBLIC POLICY INFORMATION, MONITORING AND ADVOCACY (PIMMA)
The Public Policy Information Monitoring and Advocacy project (PPIMA) is a civil society support project whose overall goal is to achieve a democratic society with equitable social justice for all Rwandan citizens. Due to the lack of interest from civil society organizations and Rwandan citizens with respect to this issue, as well as limited knowledge and ability to self-organize to effectively engage in public policy dialogue, the PPIMA project was designed to support civil society actors. The project includes support in efforts to strengthen civil society organizations, mobilize people to know and be able to defend their rights, and increase participation in and development of various societies. This project was coordinated by Norwegian People’s Aid (NPA) and has been implemented by Rwandan CSOs both at the national and district level. PPIMA supported Historically Marginalized People of 15 sectors of Nyamagabe, Nyaruguru, and Rutsiro Districts.
- Launching of PPIMA project in Rutsiro,Nyamagabe and Nyaruguru District.
For the introduction of the project, COPORWA met with district officials to lobby and discuss how to capitalize on existing opportunities within existing structures in Rwanda. This meeting was an opportunity for the officials of COPORWA, as well as from Rutsiro, Nyamagabe, and Nyaruguru Districts to understand the PPIMA project, its purpose, and the difference between implementation of the PPIMA project by COPORWA and other civil society organizations which partner with Rutsiro, Nyamagabe, and Nyaruguru PPIMA projects. This meeting clarified many confusions and ensured all agents of Rutsiro, Nyaruguru, and Nyamagabe districts understand their roles and the roles of the partners of the PPIMA project.
