Why this project?

The East African Civil Society Organizations’ Forum (EACSOF) is a regional organization striving to represent a wide ranging diversity of CSOs in the East African Community integration process. Being a young organization, EACSOF has to keep pace with the speed of the integration process by providing timely services to its key stakeholders and also grow itself as a formally recognized institution at the EAC. In order to fulfil its mandate, EACSOF Rwanda seeks to implement programmes that strengthen civil society participation in the EAC integration process.

What:

Strengthen the capacity of the National Platform for Civil Society to represent civil society interests on regional integration.

How:

TMEA is providing financial and technical assistance to EACSOF Rwanda for the Strengthening of the National Platform for Civil Society’s capacity.
