The Chief Executive Officer of Rwanda Governance Board, Professor Anastase Shyaka has called upon representatives of International Non-Governmental Organizations(INGOs) operating in the country to strengthen cooperation in the implementation process of programmes that are meant for enhancement of people’s livelihoods.
Shyaka was speaking Monday during a dialogue that brought together RGB and representatives of INGOs in Rwanda aimed at discussing and identifying collective partnerships that would lead to inclusive citizen-based development.
Shyaka said that INGOs have ample programmes which help the country attain its development goals and called for better management of projects funds to reach as many beneficiaries as possible.
“Despite the short time we’ve worked together, there’s ample hope that focus shall be directed towards building foundations that will enable bringing as many people in the loop that will be benefitting from the mutual projects ” he said.
“For the government to get INGOs operate under RGB, the intention was to deepen cooperation with all organizations, strengthen transparency and innovativeness so that we get win results,” he said.
The head of International NGOs forum in Rwanda, Papa Diouf said that since they started to operate under RGB guidance, a number of positive developments have been realized.
Currently, there are 173 non-governmental organizations operating in the country.
In February 2016, RGB was given the mandate of registering and regulating local International NGOs’ responsibilities that were previously held by Migration Office.
