MC – Rwanda (MCR)

In partnership with MCW’s Jacqueline’s Human Rights Corner, MCW opened a new community center in the town of Kayenzi, Bugesera in August 2011. ┬áBugesera 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 offers courses in English and tailoring. Social programs include a culture troupe, basket weaving cooperative and genocide survivor support group.

MC-Rwanda also partners with organizations in the country to offer a weekly 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.
