This group visited different schools reviewing the school buildings, the schools’ syllabuses and curriculum to determine the partnership in education of schools in both countries.
Chris Willets the leader of the team from one district in London in UK appreciated the quality of the education in Rwanda since most of the courses are up to date and Rwandan students will be able to compete with students from other international countries in employment market.
Jean Pierre Nteziyaremye the education officer in Rusizi district said that they will travel to UK in the very soon future to seal the partnership which will ensure sharing of knowledge through education. Students are to form projects that will provide them with more knowledge and which will enable them to create their own jobs after school.
In Rusizi district, only 3 schools have already got counterparts with schools in the UK and the main objective is to find 10 schools in Rwanda which will partner with other 10 schools in UK and this team will spend a week in Rwanda and will go back after finding the 10 schools.
