They had a target of 50 students but this went beyond their expectations as the number increased to 115 students.
The WDA Skills Development Project Manager Wilson MUYENZI called upon graduands to use the opportunity and be competitive as the government strives to promote skills development country wide.
Niyigena says that the training center has a total of 328. Out of this number, 61 are pursuing a one year program, 153 a six months program while the 115 completed a three months program.
Dr. Olivier Mukulira the Director of Accreditation and Quality Assurance in WDA commended the proper management of the grant received by UBA and urged the administration to strive for great success with the next intakes.
UBA has also helped the students who completed the course to create a cooperative and pledged some equipment including saloon helmets as start up kits for self employment.
