Type
Case study

In Rwanda, without good relations with government institutions at different levels, it would be impossible to operate and consequently have any impact on the poorest communities. This paper sheds light on how the Oxfam in Rwanda programme works with government institutions, highlighting some of the challenges as well as some key successes in building and maintaining good relationships.

Partnering for Impact series

To do the work it does, Oxfam works closely with partners at all stages of the programme, in all kind of contexts: humanitarian, influencing, development, etc. But what does it mean for our staff? Each day brings new challenges and opportunities, so how do they do it? Following a reflective and productive writeshop, this Partnering for Impact series was developed to share and explore learning from experienced practitioners about what it takes to ‘work well in partnership’.
