Plan stratégique IRYD 2022-2024

Pour renforcer notre gouvernance interne, en 2021, nous avons lancé un processus de planification stratégique (2022-2024), facilité par Kaizen Consultation, un cabinet conseil en gestion stratégique et en développement organisationnel. Le résultat de ce processus jette les bases stratégiques de la diversification de nos services, du renforcement de nos sources de financement et de la création d’un réseau plus fort pour les jeunes Rwando-canadiens et tous les jeunes d’origine africaine afin qu’ils aient accès à des ressources précieuses pour réussir économiquement au Canada et dans le monde.

Nous sommes reconnaissants au Groupe 3737 et au gouvernement du Canada d’avoir financé ce processus de planification stratégique par le biais de l’Initiative Appuyer les Communautés Noires du Canada (IACNC). Nous croyons que notre travail au cours des trois (3) prochaines années inspirera plus de jeunes et créera un impact économique positif pour les jeunes Rwandais et afro-descendants au Canada et dans le monde.

L’IRYD reçoit un financement généreux pour mettre en place un programme de soutien alimentaire pour les familles et les jeunes vulnérables au Québec


Gatineau et Montréal, QC:  La Jeunesse International Rwandais pour le Développement (ci-après « l’IRYD ») est heureuse d’annoncer un financement au montant de 138 978 $ de la Fondation Lucie et André Chagnon (ci-après « Fondation Chagnon »). Ce financement soutiendra le programme innovant de soutien alimentaire local de l’IRYD dans le contexte de la pandémie de COVID-19.


Au cours de cette quatrième vague et de cette reprise sans précédent de la pandémie mondiale de COVID-19, l’IRYD continuera de se connecter avec les familles, enfants à risque, les réfugiés de minorités visibles, les femmes, les familles, les jeunes et les personnes âgées du Québec pour s’assurer qu’ils ont suffisamment de nourriture et de produits de première nécessité pour se procurer à travers ce temps. Nous aiderons à fournir de la nourriture et des produits de première nécessité à nos membres les plus vulnérables, y compris les personnes âgées isolées, les nouveaux arrivants et les jeunes de nos communautés de Gatineau et de Montréal. « L’IRYD pense que son programme permettra aux familles de rester en sécurité, en bonne santé et bien nourries, et contribuera à la récupération du COVID-19 et à l’inclusion socio-économique », a déclaré Moses Gashirabake, cofondateur et coprésident de l’IRYD.


« Il nous a semblé primordial de participer au programme de soutien alimentaire mis sur pied par l’IRYD dans la région de Gatineau et celle de Montréal. Les populations en situation de vulnérabilité (jeunes, femmes, nouveaux arrivants…) sont, encore maintenant, les plus durement touchées par la COVID-19. Le fonds d’urgence que nous avons créé nous permet de réagir rapidement, de rester présents et de répondre à ces besoins les plus élémentaires », a déclaré Patricia Rossi, vice-présidente, Partenariats de la Fondation Chagnon.

L’IRYD remercie la Fondation Chagnon pour son soutien à notre programme et se réjouit de la poursuite de sa collaboration.

IRYD receives generous funding to set up a food support program for vulnerable families and youth in Quebec


Gatineau and Montreal, QC: The International Rwanda Youth for Development (hereafter “IRYD”) is pleased to announce funding in the amount of $138 978 from the Lucie and Andre Chagnon Foundation (hereafter “Chagnon Foundation”). This funding will support IRYD’s innovative local food support program in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic.

During this unprecedented COVID-19 global pandemic fourth wave and recovery, IRYD will continue to connect with at-risk families, children, visible minorities refugees, women, families, youth, and seniors in Quebec to ensure they have adequate food and necessities to get through this time. We will be helping to provide food and necessities to our most vulnerable members, including isolated seniors, newcomers, and youth in our communities in Gatineau and Montreal. “IRYD believes its program will enable families to stay safe, healthy, and well-fed as well as contribute to COVID-19 recovery and socio-economic inclusion,” said Moses Gashirabake, IRYD Co-Founder and Co-President.

“It seemed essential to us to participate in the food support program set up by IRYD in the Gatineau and Montreal regions. Populations in vulnerable situations (young people, women, new arrivals, etc.) are, even now, the hardest hit by COVID-19. The emergency fund that we have created allows us to react quickly, to remain present and to meet these most basic needs,” said Patricia Rossi, Vice-President, Partnerships of the Chagnon Foundation.

IRYD thanks the Chagnon Foundation for supporting our program and looks forward to continued collaboration.
