Delegation to the Republic of Rwanda
On 11 November 2014, the Minister of State in Charge of Energy and Water, Mrs Germaine Kamayirese together with Ambassador Michael Ryan, Head of the EU Delegation to Rwanda, officially launched the project “Prepaid Energy – Rent to Own Solar Home Systems”. The project aims at improving access to electricity for rural households in Rwanda by providing high quality solar systems to be installed in at least 49 000 households and in 1 000 schools in the Eastern Province. Altogether, 645 000 people will benefit from access to affordable, clean and sustainable energy.
Rwanda hosts an EU funded Sub-Saharan Africa regional conference to share ideas and insights on the state of torture in Africa. Bringing together members of the civil society organisations, the 4-day meeting will explore, among others, how governments and civil society can join efforts in preventing torture and in providing rehabilitation services to victims.
Working together in Rwanda
The project provides the population living in border regions of Rwanda and DRC with practical information on the FDLR demobilisation process and community reintegration of ex-combatants through radio and video screenings and support to local media.
