Project: Access to Justice and Human Rights Education (Rwanda)
Evaluation Date: September 2013
Report: [report link]
Lesson Learned:

The project made sure that women were included in the paralegal network. This made the project more representative and promoted the defense of women’s interests at the local level. This approach also dovetailed with a recent initiative by the Ministry of Gender and Family, which in early 2013 introduced the “Umugoroba evenings” – public events to enable women to interact and share advice.

Report: [report link]
Lesson Learned:

The local level Watch Groups and meetings created evidence and data on the status of women in grassroots democratic institutions which was used by the National Watch Groups built on the local data with analysis of the situation in national politics and democratic institutions. This provided a significant evidence-based advocacy platform, which was then reinforced and supplemented by newspaper features, radio profiles and debates, generated by the media people who had gone through the training.

Theme: Women's empowerment
