ㅇ A new $7 million project financed by the Republic of Korea and planned by Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA) is set to help equip 43,000 primary and secondary school teachers and officers with ICT skills in all the districts of Rwanda. So called the “Capacity Building for ICT in Education” (CADIE) project will run from 2017 to 2020 in cooperation with the Rwanda Education Board.
- The ambassador of the Republic of Korea to Rwanda Kim Eung-joong and the Minister of Finance and Economic Planning Claver Gatete signed the grant financing agreement.
- According to Ambassador Kim, “Korea is not plentiful in natural resources, but had only human capital like Rwanda. Education proved to be the most powerful tool. Korea has placed the greatest priority on the development of high quality labour to meet the need of the market”.
- Issac Munyakazi, the Minister for Primary and Secondary Education said that the project supports the country’s vision of a knowledge-based economy.
