For Rwanda, a land-locked country with few natural resources, the importance of education takes on an even greater significance. The government is quite active in developing educational standards and curricula, training of teachers countrywide, and enforcement of education standards in all schools, including ETSK. And recently, the government has decided to greatly expand the role of technical schools, as teaching job skills has become the greatest priority.
The country has borrowed heavily from the Singapore development model and shares much with that country, including its size and its approach to solving problems. Visitors coming back after a ten-year absence are astounded by the changes that have taken place. Visitors are also struck by the smiling, helpful people that greet them at every turn – not to mention immaculate streets with no trash in sight.
Yet much remains to be done. Unemployment is still hovering around 50% and about half the country’s operating budget comes from foreign aid. But with its objectives clearly stated and its plans firmly in place, the country is making significant strides every year.
It is in this environment that our school exists and it is in this environment that our school and the country of Rwanda will continue to progress and prosper in the years to come.
