The Rwanda Education NGO Coordination Platform (RENCP) is a forum that provides coordination for the actions of NGOs operating in Rwanda in the education sector, an area of intervention of crucial importance in developing countries to ensure an improvement in material conditions and the capacity for autonomous development.

HIV/AIDS is one of the main fronts in which NGOs are active in Rwanda and Africa, trying to halve the spread of HIV in the general population through educational practices, to reduce the mortality among HIV-positive people and to ensure that those who have been infected have the same opportunities as the rest of the population.

The first link after this answer takes you to a forum of NGOs operating in Rwanda: the Rwanda Education NGO Coordination Platform (RENCP).

The other link leads to the homepage of another Rwanda NGOs forum, a more specific one than the first as it is on HIV/AIDS. This forum gathers 160 NGOs.
