Rwanda Village Community Promoters
RVCP is a youth-led NGO in Rwanda. Founded in 1998 and started community work at village level since 2000 up to now.
The RVCP community includes university students, graduates, and professionals. It is a legally registered entity under the Rwandan Government Board.
It is located in the Huye District in the Southern province of Rwanda.
RVCP focuses on health and agriculture concept projects to promote sustainable and responsible interventions at the village level to encourage self-reliance and community-orientated solutions. We are currently running 10 programs in four chapters mainly: Norther province (Musanze and Rulindo Districts), Eastern province (Nyagatare district), Southern province (Huye, Nyaruguru, Gisagara, Nyanza and Nyamagabe Districts and Kigali city). Beside this, we also have students exchange programs with USA, Germany and Spain.
Working with youth as local volunteers has been a key part of the foundation upon which RVCP was built. It strives to increase awareness and develop youths’ problem solving skills, aptitude for fieldwork, and project planning abilities.
Furthermore, RVCP fosters an atmosphere of cultural exchange and skill sharing through working alongside each other.
