Decades of prescriptive programs have sidelined Rwandan families from participating in the very change meant to uplift them. Today, decisions for the country are made by the national and district level governments, and not at the village level. This is dangerous, as citizen participation in decision making is directly tied to belief in institutions and the stability of a country.
Boldly, the Ministry of Local Government seeks to scale Spark’s Facilitated Collective Action Process (FCAP) nationally, so that every village will have the right fulfilled to determine their own local goals and make progress against them. The FCAP is based on historical Rwandese practices of community meetings and service, and through this scaling, we will enable Rwandan villages to reclaim their pre-colonial history and post-genocide future.
