This case study covers the work of Bureau d’Appui aux Initiatives Rurales (BAIR) in Rwanda. The project aims to contribute to sustainable pro-poor wealth creation and value chain upgrading through the empowerment of women and men from the poorest and most vulnerable households, as well as the establishment of equitable participatory processes for economic decision-making at various levels.

This is achieved through adapting and up-scaling the innovative pictorial Gender Action Learning System (GALS) methodology for community-led action research in a range of value chains, contexts and organizations. The local experiences of integrating GALS in particular value chains or types of interventions are documented as ‘integration models’.
