Rwandan Diaspora in Germany have contributed in constructing Rwf90 million worth of facilities aimed at changing lives of the people of Musanze District, Northern Province.

Among the facilities are classrooms and other commercial structures.

Five classrooms, 12 latrines and one staff room were constructed at Ruhehe Primary School in Gatagara sector, and one house was constructed in for Byangabo market-based tailors.

The vice-head teacher in charge of academics at Ruhehe Primary School, Diogène Kavumu said that new classrooms will help reduce congestion.

“We are thankful for Rwandan Diaspora in Germany for such invaluable contribution to our school. These classrooms will help us reduce congestion. We used to have 60 students in one classroom but they will not exceed 45,” he said adding that staff room will help teachers work in comfortable environments.

The coordinator of Rwandan Diaspora in Germany, Claude Kalimba said that it is their target to back government’s development programmes by creating good learning environment for Rwandan children and contribute in changing communities’ lives.

“By this gesture we wanted to show that there are Rwandans who are committed to build their nation. We should differ from others who have chosen the way to oppose government programmes,” he said.

Last year, Rwandan Diaspora in German also constructed 15 classrooms worth Rwf124 million at Groupe Scholaire Nyarubara in Musanze District.
