DLF began cooperation with Rwandan teachers’ unions in 2009 using DLF’s own resources. The present phase of the project runs from 2022 to 2025 and has an annual budget of approximately 13,000€ (100,000 DKK), financed by Danida through the LO-FTF Council.
The goal of the project is to strengthen the organisations’ capacity and to increase the membership. The project also aims at improving the social dialogue. The overall objective is to improve the teachers’ living conditions and the quality of education, in general.
The project cooperation has its main focus on strengthening the Rwandan teachers’ organisations by analysing the unions’ capacity, and based on that to develop and describe their policies – followed by working out strategies and budgets in order to carry out the organisations’ policies. This development work is carried out by holding workshops and courses: First, for the national and local leaders of SYNEDUC, and currently for the school representatives (shop stewards) from all over the country.
