Rwanda - Government Profile

National Social Protection in Rwanda

The Government of Rwanda, through the Ministry having Social Affairs within its remit, namely MINALOC, has decided to formulate a National Social Protection Policy. In a context of very limited resources and tremendous needs, it is noticeable that the few financial and human existing resources meant for social protection are scattered. There are different isolated small-scale interventions in favour of a restricted number of people. Sometimes, their target groups are not well identified and, consequently, it is noticed that these interventions are expensive without tangible results.
