The Government of Rwanda has earmarked a total amount of US$1billion (Frw560bn) to be invested in establishing and promoting telecentres in the country.
Telecentres' project would be accelerated as a move to enable people in rural areas access information vital for their development. They are also enhanced to provide multi-purpose services through information, skills and consultancy, and business support by reducing the cost of doing business and business transactions between companies. The project is also aimed at transforming Rwanda into an ICT literate nation. The project is a way of improving access to information to enhance educational standards and to foster human resource development of Rwandans. This is also expected to lead to job-creation, sustainable growth and increase investments in poor people to facilitate their participation in the development.
