ICNL’s resources and information on Rwanda.
ICNL is implementing a program in partnership with our local partner, the Concertation des Organisations d’Appui aux Initiatives de Base which seeks to improve the implementation of the NGO Law by fostering dialogue between the government and civil society organizations on how the legal framework can better address the needs and concerns of the sector. ICNL and its partners are developing a mobile platform to encourage information exchange between NGOs and government. ICNL also provides young lawyers with opportunities to increase their capacity to work on legal issues affecting the non-profit sector and supports the development of civil society law courses at select universities in Rwanda.
ICNL is opposed to all forms of trafficking in persons and is committed to mitigating the risk of trafficking in persons in connection with its operations and programs. It is the policy of ICNL to comply fully with the provisions of our cooperative agreements regarding trafficking in persons. Read our full policy here.
