In partnership with MCW’s Jacqueline’s Human Rights Corner, MCW Global opened a community center in the town of Kayenzi, Bugesera in August 2011. Bugesera was chosen as the site for 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.
