CAVAP Self-Help Groups

The local Rwandan NGO AEE Rwanda implemented self-help groups in Rwanda's Eastern province, funded by the German Bundesministerium für wirtschaftliche Zusammenarbeit (BMZ) and Kindernothilfe (KNH).

These photos are from profiles of four families whose futures have been transformed through their self-help groups. The images were included in reports to the funding institutions, AEE Rwanda information brochures, and the AEE Rwanda annual report.

Sprouted sorghum lies drying in the sun in front of Regina’s house. The sorghum is Regina’s business and an important source of income for her family, made possible by her CAVAP self-help group. Regina credits her CAVAP self-help group with financially transforming her life. She can now buy health insurance for herself, her husband, and her two children, and her family is no longer dependent on only her husband’s income.
