“I have dreamed about this day when ordinary people are training others to organize their own communities and make government officials accountable.”- Pr. John, PICO Rwanda Executive Director
PICO Rwanda leaders, Specioza, Ezra, and Poline are training communities to organize their labor and money and bring water to the clinic in Rusumo and build an elementary school near Mumeya. Now government and church officials want other communities to learn these skills. See pictures and read more about it here.
