The Savings and Credit program implemented by ADEPR in partnership with HOPE International started its activities for sustainable development in Gitarama in November 2012. The ADEPR Gitarama region is located in the Southern Province, operating in Ruhango, Muhanga, and Kamonyi Districts. Under the authority of Rev. KALISA Emmanuel, Rev. RUGANZA Ephraïm serves as the Gitarama program supervisor and Rev. Mudenge J. Damscène as Spiritual Integration. As of January 2015, the region has 227 saving groups with almost 4,000 members and 22 church facilitators.
I am married with Mrs. UWINGABIRE Marie Rose with whom we have two girls and one boy: UMUKUNZI Nkurunziza Digne, INEZA Nkurunziza Eunice and MWIZERWA Nkurunziza Asher. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Sociology.
As a dedicated Christian worker my vision is to fully achieve in the areas that contributes to the holistic transformation of the vulnerable communities I work with through Savings and Credit Association empowerment based on the Biblical principles of sustainable physical, spiritual and social development.
