Expression of Interest (EOI) Supply E-Bike Rikshaws


The Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH is a federally owned international cooperation enterprise for sustainable development with worldwide operations. GIZ has worked in Rwanda for over 30 years. The primary objectives between the Government of Rwanda and the Federal Republic of Germany are poverty reduction and promotion of sustainable development. To achieve these objectives, GIZ Rwanda is active in the sectors of Decentralization and Good Governance, Economic Development and Employment Promotion, Energy, and ICT (Information and Communications Technology).

2.General context of Eco-Emploi 2020– 2022

Over the last decade, Rwanda has experienced robust economic growth. However, the rate of unemployment and underemployment is still high. With strategies like the National Strategy for Transformation (NST 1) and the Private Sector Development and Youth Employment Strategy (PSDYES), the Government of Rwanda is promoting skills development and the creation of off-farm jobs. The bilateral programme for the “Promotion of Economy and Employment (Eco-Emploi)”, commissioned by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and implemented by GIZ as part of the priority area “Sustainable Economic Development” of the Rwandan-German Development Cooperation, is supporting these efforts.

Eco-Emploi incorporates an integrated approach of Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET), Labor Market Interventions (LMI), and Private Sector Development (PSD) and is being implemented by GIZ between January 2020 and December 2022. The Programme aims at employment-intensive growth in selected economic sectors, namely the wood industry, tourism & hospitality, and film industry, with a special focus on digitalization. The economic empowerment of women, youth, and people with disabilities is a crosscutting effort in all activities of the Programme. Eco-Emploi works towards achieving SDG 1 “No poverty”, SDG 4 “High-quality education”, SDG 5 “Gender Equality”, and SDG 6 “Decent work and economic growth”.

It is against the above background that GIZ would like to procure E-Bike Rikshaws as described here below.
