A total of 215 youth in Rulindo district were urged to exploit the available opportunities and create jobs for sustainable development.
The youth that completed training in tailoring, carpentry, hair dressing and welding were given materials to create jobs and employ others.
Materials that were given to the graduating youth were worth Rwf12.5 million of which beneficiaries will pay half of it through Imirenge Saccos.
“Make use of the available resources and create jobs for social and economic development,” said Prosper Murindwa, vice-mayor for economic affairs in Rulindo district.
The event was done under the campaign by Rulindo district administration to fight poverty in 500 days.
Hanga Umurimo (HUP) was established to unlock the youth’s potentials to run competitive and innovative enterprises in order to generate more job opportunities.
The objective of the project is to enforce the young people to provide jobs to the public and to turn the country into a middle-income economy.
