Country Priorities

In Rwanda, ACORD’s overarching goal is to engage communities in the construction of a just and equitable society where people coexist in peace and dignity, and become responsible for their own development. The objective is to strengthen the livelihoods of the rural population, in particular marginalised and vulnerable groups, and their capacity in achieving inclusive and sustainable livelihoods through resilient ecosystems, productive employment, and entrepreneurship.
