Peace & Community Development Initiative (PCDI)-Kisoro is a registered community based organization, No. DGCS/8/2004.
The idea began in August 2002. In November, a small scale Savings and Credit group of 10 people was established. It was called Amahoro (Peace) Society. Members would contribute money according to shares. Members of the society could borrow money according to pre-set guidelines.
In November 2003, membership grew to 30 people. At this time there was need to restructure the project to allow more room for growth and efficiency. In December 2003, members resolved to have the project registered. The name was changed to Peace and Community Development Initiative. The name was adopted after realizing the need for intervention into the community’s problems such as extreme ignorance and chronic poverty.
Between 2005 and October 2010 the organization remained existent but had no significant activities due to lack of funding and shifting of significant staff. In October 2010 PCDI resumed operations. A new staff and committee were setup and an office was established. PCDI is currently moving on successfully.
