coaching youth in small and medium businesses in schools
In Rwanda each year, many Rwandans finish secondary schools. Some of them continue university program but more than 60% stay in their communities. The unemployment rate in Rwanda is more than 16%. In order to keep our mission of promoting vulnerable children, CRD has started the project of coaching these youth who are unemployed, allowing them to get practical experience regarding business plan, business implementation and reporting since 2016 to now. This project is implemented in fifteen schools that our children beneficiaries attend. They are located in Huye and Gisagara districts where each school business has been provided professional materials to guide them.
