The state minister in charge of TVET Albert Nsengiyumva and the CHF Country Director
CHF/ Global Communities and the Ministry of Education are in talks on creating partnership for promotion of youth entrepreneurship and life skills development in Rwanda.
CHF is drafting a 3 months communication campaign to promote TVET with the slogan “TVET Umwuga wanjye, ubuzima bwiza”. or “TVET My career, My future”
CHF is strategically planning to use a set of media outlets including radio, TV, billboards and news papers to make sure that this message reaches the targeted audience.
The state minister in charge of TVET Albert Nsengiyumva welcomed the idea which he regarded as very critical in sensitizing Rwandans on TVET and delivering a key message of linking skills, job and better life.
He further recommend that CHF engages with WDA as TVET main implementing agency and other TVET stakeholders with a similar plan to harmonize activities involved in sensitizing Rwandans, particularly the Youth.
“I believe that this would help to harmonize interventions and create more synergies. As we invest in skills delivery, we also need a clear linkage on all activities involved” The Minister further said.
According to CHF Country Director Milton FUNES there are some activities that CHF/ Global Communities is planning for the coming months that he finds important to be aligned with the Ministry’s objectives.
He gave the example of a mid September Career and Life Management (CALM) Retreat for TVET Graduates.
The 4 day event is being organized to educate, engage and empower 250 youth with life skills to help them enter the workforce and be able to compete on the job market.
Global Communities (formerly CHF International) through its USAID ‘Higa Ubeho’ program has expanded opportunities for youth across Rwanda to enroll in one year Technical and Vocational training programs.
