AGACIRO DEVELOPMENT FUND
It is with great pleasure that we inform you about the establishment of Agaciro Development Fund by the Government of Rwanda. This Solidarity Fund was initially proposed, discussed and recommended during last year's (2011) Umushyikirano /National dialogue meeting. And consequently, it was agreed that a sovereign fund should be put in place specifically to finance our country’s development as a way of fast tracking Vision 2020.
Thus, The Agaciro Development Fund (AgDF) is a sovereign fund, based on donations that have been initiated by Rwandans, and friends of Rwanda, to improve the level of financial autonomy of Rwanda as a nation. The fund is not intended to substitute the existing funds but rather to supplement them. The uniqueness of the fund is that it is Rwandans themselves that will finance it. The Agaciro Development Fund sets the tone that Rwandans will work together to drive their own development.
It’s in this regard that Rwanda High Commission wishes to inform all Rwandans and friends of Rwanda that a bank account has been set up for that purpose. The Rwanda High Commission, thus requests all Rwandans and friends of Rwanda to donate voluntarily and generously any affordable amount of money into the following bank account:
Account Name: Embassy of Rwanda- Inter-Agency Account
Account Number: 91531948
Sort Code: 40-05-22
IBAN Number: GB25MIDL40052291531948
