GITEGA December 8th (ABP) – The Permanent Executive Secretariat of the National Social Protection Commission organized, on December 2, 2022 in Gitega (Center of the country), a coordination workshop for social protection stakeholders working in Gitega, in as part of executing the action plan for the 2022-2023 financial year and with the aim of ensuring the coordination and monitoring of social protection projects and programs operating in that province.
In his speech, the administrative and financial director at the permanent executive secretariat of the national commission for social protection, Mr. Désiré Niyiburana called on non-governmental organizations working in the field of social protection in the political capital, to develop their projects in collaboration with the administrators and the people.
According to him, there are organizations that pretend that they carry out development projects in different areas of intervention when there is no longer any remarkable work that they have carried out in a well-defined period.
Mr. Niyiburana asked them to pull themselves together, in order to implement the projects they have developed, but also not to always agglomerate in the cities or the chief towns of the communes. You also have to go to the villages, where the vulnerable who need intervention really reside. To that end, he called on the administrative officials to vigilantly monitor the activities carried out by those organizations in their constituencies.
As for the adviser to the governor of Gitega in charge of administration and finance, Mrs. Marie Nindemera, the contribution of certain non-governmental organizations in the context of social protection is satisfactory, because, she says, quite a few vulnerable and elderly people benefit from aid through these organizations to improve their state of health. She called on them to step up their efforts to continue helping people improve their health.
Note that on the sidelines of this activity, each organization presented the projects it has carried out.
