- Hundreds of genocide orphans learned English and IT skills
- Students prepared for job interviews
More than 400,000 children were orphaned by Rwanda’s genocide. Many were left to look after each other in child-headed households, sacrificing their own education in order to bring up the younger orphans. As a consequence, thousands missed out on school. However, many wanted to resume their education in order to learn a vocational skill or go to school or university. In an attempt to address this need, we opened the Rwanda Multi-Learning Centre where four members of staff offered beginners, intermediate and advanced English classes. Receiving 120 students a year, the Learning Centre also offered IT and business skills training and help with CV writing and job interview workshops.
