RMEO - Rwanda Monitoring and Evaluation Organization


About RMEO

Rwanda Monitoring and Evaluation Organization (RMEO) is registered as Non-Governmental Organization with Certificate of Legal Personality N°969/RGB/NGO/LP/02/2024 in conformity with the Rwandan Law. Its mission is to cultivate the highest professional standards in monitoring and evaluation practice and theory through highly skilled and motivated members.

Founded in 2016 as a peer learning group, RMEO employs field-tested methods and innovative uses of technologies to develop practical and locally-driven solutions with our partners in Rwanda and beyond. RMEO is currently implementing a two-year project in Rwanda called: Project for improving Monitoring and Evaluation Practice in Rwanda. Specifically, RMEO is partnering with the MasterCard Foundation to implement this project.

The goal of this project is two-fold. It seeks to strengthen the organizational capacity of RMEO as a convener of M&E professionals with an emphasis on youth partners under thirty-five (35) years of age whom RMEO works with from different civil society organizations in Rwanda. Further, the project seeks to institutionalize evaluation practices through support of RMEO’s existing youth-partners mostly in civil society and its young members who are in local government entities.

The project will provide training programs that will build and strengthen the capacities of the two groups by providing them with development evaluation and technology-related skills necessary to enable them access decent employment opportunities in the labor market.
