Idea in brief

Half of Rwanda’s population is under 18. This means that children and youth in Rwanda need to be supported, empowered and encouraged as they have a crucial role in the future of the country. Kayisire Jacques has developed a Football and ICT Skills Training program which helps rejuvenate the Rwandan youth, increase their self-esteem, promote peace, reconciliation and unity and inspire a joyful spirit. The program will empower children through both football and computer skills.
