Consultant to support a Rwandan NGO to create a five-year strategic plan


RCN Justice & Democracy (RCN J&D) is a Belgian non-governmental organization (NGO) founded in 1994 in the aftermath of the Rwandan genocide. It aims to ensure the respect of the fundamental rights of each individual, in particular the right to justice and the rights enshrined in international human rights conventions. In the wake of the genocide, RCN J&D supported the reconstruction of the Rwandan justice system. Recently its programme has focused on strengthening the demand-side and supply-side of the justice sector by building the capacity of relevant actors (including CSOs, Abunzi, MAJ Agents, and Executive Secretaries) and by raising awareness amongst Rwandan citizens of basic rights, in particular women’s land rights, and how to claim them through appropriate justice services.
In August 2015, RCN J&D began a new 41 month project funded by the Swedish International Development Agency (Sida) – represented by the Swedish Embassy in Rwanda –in five districts which will build upon previous work. The project, entitled Strengthening Proximity Justice in Rwanda (SPJR) has three main strands :
I. Building the capacity of Justice Sector Actors (e.g. the Abunzi and the MAJ).
II. Building the capacity of CSOs, particularly those involved in the justice sector.
III. Public awareness on basic rights and how to claim them using radio, theatre, IEC materials and community dialogues.

Regarding the 2nd strand of the SPJR project (building the capacity of CSOs) RCN J&D seeks to recruit a qualified consultant to work closely with one national NGO, based in Karongi, to help them create a 5 year strategic plan (Jan 2018 – Jan 2023).
