Gikuriro is implemented through a consortium of two International Agencies; Catholic Relief Services - USCCB (CRS) who is the prime and SNV, the Netherlands Development Organization a sub recipient. INWA works through decentralized Government of Rwanda (GoR) systems and structures and local civil society organizations (LCSOs) in the eight targeted districts. CRS and SNV pool significant technical expertise and capacity strengthening experience in the four key areas to catalyze results of existing actors: nutrition (CRS), hygiene and sanitation (SNV), capacity strengthening (CRS and SNV) and BCC (CRS and SNV).
Gikuriro embodies CRS and SNV’s programmatic and operational approach to improve the nutritional status of women of reproductive age and children under five, especially in the first 1,000 days of life.
