SUPPORTING SUSTAINABLE GROWTH AND EMPLOYMENT CREATION IN RWANDA
The Eco-Emploi project is a Rwandan-German initiative aimed at creating jobs and strengthening companies and cooperatives in the wood, tourism and audio-visual value chain through an integrated approach to employment promotion. A specific focus is placed on the economic empowerment of women, youth and persons with disabilities as well as the promotion of digital solutions.
THE VALUE CHAINS
Eco-Emploi specifically supports the economic empowerment of persons with disabilities. For example, the project advises the National Council of Persons with Disabilities (NCPD) in its mandate to advocate for the inclusion of persons with disabilities in the national development of Rwanda. Amongst others, the NCPD is supported in the development of disability inclusive employment promotion, specifically a Disability Management Information System that identifies the barriers, needs and potentials of persons with disabilities to facilitate their integration into the labour market.
