Rwanda Community Theater: More Than 2300 Learn About Land Rights

RWANDA - One of the most important ways to reduce vulnerability to the crime of property grabbing, rampant throughout Africa, is to ensure that people know their rights and how to report the crime to local authorities. This fall, IJM Rwanda hosted the community theater component of the USAID-funded Land Dispute Management Project. This community theater production was designed to creatively educate citizens about their land rights and to equip them to resolve the devastating crime of property-grabbing justly. The theater performances were held in Jali sector, a rural area outside of Rwanda’s capital city of Kigali, and drew more than 2350 men, women and children to attend.
