Policy in Rwanda


In Rwanda, MAP aimed to influence national curricula and youth policy via working with the Rwanda Basic Education Board (REB) and other key educational and cultural organisations.

In September 2020, the University of Lincoln received a GCRF / Newton Fund Agile COVID-19 Rapid Response Award to develop MAP at Home. MAP at Home was an 18-month sub-project of MAP Network Plus, which focused on mental health support and community engagement in Rwanda during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Small Grant activities continued to explore the findings from the MAP at Home project through youth-led research projects between January 2022 – July 2022. 


In 2023-2024 the policy initiatives involve bringing and directly engaging policy makers in the re-spinning of cultural art forms at specific events, such as the Girls’ Drumming festivals, and photo exhibitions.
