The Government of Rwanda announced a lucrative multi-million dollar Community Information Centres' (CIC) project, to set up hundreds of telecenters all over the country in three years.
A hefty Frw1.68b (US$3m) will be invested in setting up the telecentres. The project is a result of a study conducted by the International Telecommunications Union (ITU) in 2002. The number of the telecenters would depend on the location and population size to determine the investment for their needs. Rwanda is implementing a highly ambitious strategy to achieve sustainable economic growth, through ICTs.
