Our team was at HVP Gatagara from 3 till 10 march 2018: we have a collaboration agreement with this network for physically disabled persons in order to improve services in the community and to empower those in need at community level. The national CBR committee of Rwanda has chosen 5 districts in the country to develop pilot programs: in 2 out of 5 districts CBR Team International will be the strategic partner.
This first training session was the start of a training cycle of 1.5 years. We trained 6 field workers, 8 CBR managers, and 1 CBR coordinator. We introduced a new evaluation and monitoring system, we worked intensively with the beneficiaries to learn from their needs, and we conducted a role play in self help groups and sensitisation campaigns.
Thanks to Rosette, Gaspard, Joseph, Chantal, Placidie and Claudine we will be touching about 1200 people with a disability !
