The Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Youth and ICT, Rosemary Mbabazi has urged the youth to work hard and get specialization in the relevant field which could be beneficial for the people and progress of the country.

She made the remarks on Wednesday during her visit at Amizero Training Center (ATC) in Kayonza District.

This is a technical school where youth are trained in carpentry, welding, plumbing, tailoring, cooperative management, hotel and services.

Mbabazi told youth at Amizero Center that they can achieve what they want by embracing the culture of working hard.

“The Government of Rwanda introduced a fund to help youth and women boost their projects where youth grouped in cooperatives are required a guarantee equal to 25% of the total cost of their project where 75% will be guaranteed by the fund as a loan; I urge you to approach COOJAD and SACCO’s to access easily these facilities,” she said.

The Director of Amizero Training Center, John Bideri said that this center has a social component where area residents are trained to embrace modern farming and help youth to create their own jobs where the center and partners provide start up kits to help them start generating revenues.
