Meet your UN

My interest for the UN started when I saw how their work was built on working within the different regions that needed their help, not only being situated in the country where the organisation was started but going to the field.

Patricia Tumarirungu
Intern / UNDP

Working for the UN gives me great satisfaction because I’ve always been incredibly passionate about human rights, and the UN provides me with a great platform to follow this passion.

Chris Mburu
Senior Human Rights Advisor / OHCHR

It is great to assess people’s needs, find a service gap and plan our activities to fill such a gap. We work closely with the government, but we are an independent agency; therefore we have both complementarity and autonomy in decision making. This is the favourite part of my work.

Yves Kaza
Project Officer / IOM

As UNDP Country Director, I deal with activities related poverty reduction, sustainable environmental management, and accountable governance. I also work  closely with many other UN agencies in the country, particularly since Rwanda is a One UN country, which means lots of UN inter-agency interaction.
