BACKGROUND

Rwanda Correctional Service (RCS), which was created under Law N° 34/2010 of 12/11/2010 was the result of merging the former National Prisons Service (NPS) and the Executive Secretariat of National Committee of Community Services as an alternative penalty to imprisonment (TIG).

It has transformed itself into an institution that rehabilitates convicts to become responsible citizens when they eventually serve their time rather than a punishment oriented body. On top of this, the institution has increasingly become income generating rather than a funding consuming body.
