Meet your UN

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.

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.
