Rwanda Threshold Program

The Rwanda Threshold Program's end date was December 31, 2011. The Threshold Program is now closed.

The three-year MCC program supported the Rwandan government’s efforts to strengthen civic participation, promote civil liberties and rights and improve the judicial system. The program provided training, technical support and grants to local and national civil society organizations and expanded citizen engagement by supporting independent community radio stations. The program reinforced Rwanda’s efforts to strengthen the judiciary and enact legislative reforms to strengthen civil liberties, human rights and civic participation. Finally, the program boosted training and technical assistance to journalists and the Rwandan National Police in an effort to further transparency and professionalism.
