Rwanda: Qualitative Evaluation Consultant for Self-Help Groups in Rural Rwanda

Organization: Global Civic Sharing
Country: Rwanda
Closing date: 20 Apr 2018

Introduction

Global Civic Sharing Rwanda (hereafter GCS Rwanda) has been implementing various projects in Nyarubaka sector, Kamonyi district since 2009. From the beginning of 2018, GCS Rwanda implements the second phase of “Self-Reliance Project for Vulnerable People Based on Civil Empowerment in Rwanda” in collaboration with Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA) for three years (2018-2020). The project is the continuous project which has been implemented since 2015.

As GCS Rwanda is planning an exit strategy from the current location, it is essential to assess the impact of the project, especially related to the life of the participants and their capacity for self-reliance. For that GCS Rwanda will have both qualitative and quantitative assessment throughout the next three-years project, and this paper is prepared to promote understanding of potential partner (Consultant) for qualitative assessment on our project and organisation.

About Global Civic Sharing

Global Civic Sharing (hereafter GCS) is a non-religious and Korean-affiliated International NGO working in eight countries in Asia and Africa (Vietnam, Mongolia, East Timor, Myanmar, Kenya, Rwanda, Ethiopia and South Korea). The mission statement of GCS is “to support our neighbour’s self-reliance and realise the sustainable development”. The following core values shall guide all activities under GCS: people-centred, change, non-discrimination and sharing.

About Project

In 2008, when “Vision 2020 Umurenge Program” (hereafter VUP) began to be implemented, Nyarubaka sector was selected as the poorest sector in the district, and GCS also selected Nyarubaka sector as project area in 2009. Current indicators present that economic situation of the sector has been improved, however urban migration of educated citizen, insufficient basic social services and agriculture-focused economic structure which is vulnerable climate change impede sustainability of sector development.

Sector authority of Nyarubaka is implementing various activities to increase agriculture/livestock production, create off-farm jobs, improve financial accessibility for the citizen and cooperates with GCS Rwanda in implementing Self-reliance Project for Vulnerable People based on Civil Empowerment in Rwanda from 2015 to 2017 with three main activities: 1) Self-Help Groups, 2) Agriculture Skills Trainings and 3) Adult Literacy education. Through the project, it is believed that participants have acquired pro-developmental attitude and ties among participants have been strengthened. However, some challenges regarding self-reliance are also founded: low participation rate of vulnerable people, low capacity of coping with social/natural crisis and insufficient willingness of continuing development activities by themselves.

Therefore, GCS Rwanda implements the second phase of the project for community-lead poverty reduction in Nyarubaka through empowering of community organisations’ self-reliance capacity and sustainable livelihoods skills training including adult literacy promotion and agricultural skills training.
