Renforcement des Capacités avec L’Église Catholique du Rwanda

Renforcement des Capacités avec L'Église Catholique du Rwanda   

Partenaires de longue date pour le développement, Catholic Relief Services Rwanda et l'Église catholique du Rwanda ont entamé une collaboration sans pareil en 2004, lorsque CRS a commencé à fournir une assistance technique, un accompagnement et finalement un financement modeste pour le renforcement des capacités. Les activités de renforcement de capacités ont débuté avec le diocèse de Cyangugu et se sont rapidement étendues pour inclure la Conférence épiscopale et, à des degrés différents, quatre autres diocèses. Les interventions ont évolué vers ce que CRS a désigné comme le portefeuille d’appui stratégique à l'Église.
