Rwanda Consumer's Rights Protection Organization (ADECOR)
Damien Ndizeye is the Executive Secretary of the Rwanda Consumers’ Rights Protection Organization (ADECOR). He has held the position since 2010 and is one of the founder members of the organisation. His duties and responsibilities are to lead the entire organisation, planning strategies and developmental plans for the welfare of the organisation.
The establishment of ADECOR was based on four fundamental rights of consumers: 1. right to a decent life (safe and quality goods and services); 2. right to free choice (accessibility to multiple and affordable choices of goods and services), 3. right to information (about prices and descriptions and effects of products and services), and finally, 4. right to be heard (being able to express his/her satisfaction or grievances and get appropriate remedies). ADECOR has now more than 400 members across the country volunteering when there is necessity. ADECOR has also initiated provincial committees of consumers.
