The government of Rwanda has put legal and institutional frameworks in place that address the issues of persons with disabilities. These include the 2003 Constitution, the Law protecting the rights of disabled persons and the Ministerial Order providing for the regulation of the Federation, Associations and Centers responsible for the welfare of Persons with Disabilities as well as ratification of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.
In Rwanda, DPOD has supported the disability movement through funding of collaborations between DPOD member organisations in Denmark and their Rwandese counterparts of disabled. In 2008 DPOD developed a five year country strategy valid until mid 2012 to guide its involvement in Rwanda.
- The Country Strategy section contains information about which focus areas there are for country projects receiving funding from the DPOD miniprogramme.
- The Projects section contains information about current and previous development collaborations carried out by DPOD member organisations, with either miniprogramme or alternative funding.
- The Country Group section contains information about DPOD organisations who are currently implementing country projects, or who have previously implemented them. Description and contact information for the countries with country offices can also be found here.
