Development of the Sustainability Plan of Nature Rwanda

  1. BACKGROUND

Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida) through Save the Children International (SCI) in Rwanda, is implementing a five-year program (2022-2026) to develop a strong civil society that demands and supports the fulfillment of children’s rights—holding states to account and mobilizing and empowering children and their communities. This program focuses on the five Sida’s mandatory perspectives: (1) Perspectives of the most marginalized and deprived children, (2) Child Rights Programming, (3) Gender Equality, (4) Conflict Sensitivity, and (5) Climate Change & Environment.

Nature Rwanda is one of the implementing partners of this program to establish child-led groups where children are inspired and supported to become active participants in creating a suitable environment for their health, education, and development in a fun and relevant way using “Greenie” as a “vehicle”. Children will gain the capacity to assess their community’s environmental needs, develop action plans to address those needs, and implement activities. After this program, Nature Rwanda is expected to be well functioning and increase its independence, sustainability, and competency in integrating children and their rights in environmental conservation and climate actions.

  1. JUSTIFICATION FOR CONSULTANCY

Nature Rwanda is a non-governmental organization with the legal personality No 470/RGB/NGO/LP/04/2019, and has a vision of building communities where human beings coexist with nature without compromising the well-being of future generations.
