PERPETUE KAMUYUMBU Country Director - Rwanda
Perpetue is an experienced leader and policy and advocacy advisor who has been heavily invested in supporting local governments for over 20 years in the water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) sector. She has worked for the Ministry of Infrastructure (formerly Ministry of Public Works and Energy), and several international nonprofit organizations (INGO). Perpetue also served as an independent consultant in the areas of planning and impact evaluation for several INGOs. Perpetue has been consulted in the development of the current water and sanitation policies in Rwanda and their implementation strategies. She was also consulted in the development of the national water quality monitoring and surveillance strategy, the WASH sector bottleneck analysis. She was involved in the formulation of a strategic plan for addressing sector challenges, and in conversations pertaining to improved sector financing. Her deep understanding of the cultural and political contexts within Rwanda allows her to analyze and navigate opportunities and challenges and identify the appropriate actors to collaborate with to advance initiatives in the WASH sector.
Perpetue joined Water For People in November 2008 as Senior Program Manager and has been serving as Country Director since July 2010. She is responsible for the overall coordination of country program interventions with a focus in the three districts of intervention, and particularly works with national WASH stakeholders to push WASH sector agenda towards universal and sustainable access to WASH services. This includes providing technical and financial support to the sector for the creation of an enabling environment for sustainable WASH services across all sector building blocks—planning, monitoring, water resources management, sector financing, institutions strengthening, infrastructure development, regulation and accountability, and learning and adaptation.
