Synopsis: 

"An ihuriro is a traditional Rwandan collective community effort to achieve something practical for households. This might be working on each other's land in turn, caring for elders or rebuilding a house.

"ACORD in Rwanda supports the ihuriro in using this tradition to discuss and take collective action on issues such as soil erosion, land rights, HIV and AIDs, gender or conflict. The approach has empowered ordinary citizens to be aware of their rights and to exercise them."
