MCC Threshold Program Media Strengthening Project: This is a two-year project to strengthen Rwanda's media sector. The project will focus on: - building the capacity and skills of media owners, managers, editors, professional media associations, and individual journalists to increase the sustainability and professionalism of private media outlets; and - establishing two independent community radio stations. This media strengthening project is a part of the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC) Threshold Program, which was developed to address Rwanda's MCC Ruling Justly indicators, specifically Political Rights, Civil Liberties, and Voice and Accountability. The Rwanda Threshold Program has additional activities which this media strengthening project will actively link with and support. These include the following: improve the impartiality, efficiency, and independence of the judiciary; facilitate the implementation of Rwanda's legislative reform agenda; enhance the effective engagement between government and civil society, particularly in the areas of policy formulation and development planning; and improve the internal investigations functions of the Rwandan National Police. Rwanda's Threshold Program will be implemented by USAID/Rwanda in partnership with the Government of Rwanda (GOR).
