Minaloc raises Frw 180 million for Agaciro Fund
Staff from the Ministry of Local Government (Minaloc) and its agencies committed to raise Frw 188,064,298 for the recently launched Agaciro Development Fund (AgDF), surrendering their net salary of one month.
Minaloc, topping the list, raised Frw 31,106,007 and was followed by the National ID Project (Frw 29,754,227) and Orinfor (26,400,000).
FARG’s staff surrendered Frw 10,000,000 while the newly established national council of people living with disability committed to grant the Fund with Frw 5,341,048.
“This is a step we should be always making in Minaloc family because it is the true meaning of upholding our dignity”, noted yesterday James Musoni, the Minister, commending the commitment of the staff from the ministry and its agencies.
Though Agaciro was proposed by Rwandans during last year’s National Dialogue as their own contribution towards supporting projects of national development, the initiative has proven to be a timely savior to which the government is hoping to use as supplement to scarce resources.
