The Anglican Church of Rwanda, dioceses of Butare, Cyangugu, Kigeme and Shyogwe via the Rural Development Inter-diocesan Service (RDIS) is implementing successfully a number of interventions for promoting sustainable and holistic development of the people, for example by initiating projects for environmental protection, income generation and modern farming.
Among the issues that challenge the environment in Rwanda is the wide use of open firewood stoves for cooking and for boiling drinking water. This led to the design and implementation of a project for improving living standards of households and reducing the strain on natural resources through the distribution of Improved Cook Stoves and Ceramic Water Filters. The title of this Carbon Project is: Carbon Credits for Emission Reduction (CCER).
RDIS organisation with support from United Evangelical Mission (UEM) and Klima-Kollekte has produced this promotional video film for the CCER project to promote it to the audiences in Rwanda, in Germany and elsewhere.
The United Evangelical Mission (UEM) - African Region - organized a follow-up workshop on the Role of Churches in Addressing Climate Change with an exposure visit to RDIS's environmental protection projects in Rwanda, from 14th to 16th November 2018. The hosting Church was the Anglican Church - Shyogwe diocese.
This sub-regional workshop was organized by UEM in collaboration with 6 member Churches: 4 dioceses of Anglican Church (Butare, Shyogwe, Cyangungu, and Kigeme), CBCA, EPR, ELCT-NWD, ELCT-KAD and ELCT-ECD.
More than 25 participants from the 6 Churches shared about their actions and projects (achievements, challenges and further recommendations) for Environmental Protection in the past 2 years as a follow-up workshop on UEM Recommendations for Climate Change, which were endorses by UEM leaders in workshops that were held in March/2016 and September/2016 in Nyamata Rwanda and in September/2017 in Dar es Salaam.
