MC – Rwanda (MCR)

MCW opened a new center in the town of Kayenzi, Bugesera in August 2011. Built in partnership with MCW’s Jacqueline’s Human Rights Corner. Bugesera was chosen as the site of MC-Rwanda’s work in the country due to the high level of genocide survivors living in the region.

The center currently offers courses in English and tailoring. Social programs include a culture troupe, basket weaving cooperative and genocide survivor support group. MC-Rwanda has also partnered with organizations within Rwanda to offer a once-a-week course in business planning and entreprenuership with a special focus on women. In September 2014, MC-Rwanda was granted accreditation from the Workforce Development Authority to provide computer technician and tailoring courses at the center. Future programs include plumbing and electrical engineering.
