A community training center set up by the South Coreenne Commission in Mayange / District De Bugesera
The Korean National Commission for UNESCO is preparing to build a community training center in Rwanda. The construction of this center begins with the budget year 2017-2018 and is part of helping Rwanda to achieve its sustainable development objectives (SDGs) and especially to reach the objective that the country has set itself to make this country a knowledge-based economy.

This goal can only be achieved if Rwanda succeeds in achieving its sectoral strategic plan for education, in helping its people to develop their intellectual potential and in using their full capacity to develop and fight poverty. To this end, the Rwandan people must benefit from the opportunities of knowledge, capacity and competitive attitudes in the labor market and contribute to the socio-economic development of the country.
 
The representatives of the population follow closely the presentation of the project and the role they will play.
 
The main objective of this project is to build a solid foundation of the "Bridge Rwanda Project" which aims to help stop the vicious circle of poverty and achieve the development of the individual and the country in general. This project consists of the construction of a community training center in the village of Kavumu, Gakamba cell, Mayange area, Bugesera district, to help develop non-formal education, pre-school education, literacy and Vocational training, a center that will be completely under the total management of the community after a transition period of three years and which will meet the needs of this same population. Indeed, meetings of formations of opinion leaders were organized by the project coordinator in collaboration with the Rwanda National Commission for UNESCO.

The construction of the center begins with community meetings with the population to determine their needs in order to adapt the center to the needs of the local population. Work is continuing with representatives of social groups such as youth representatives, people with disabilities, women’s representatives and administrative authorities in the sector. With these training courses too, the population is called upon to determine their degree of participation as well as their role in the construction and management of the center.
 
Group consultations to determine the role of the population in the construction and running of the center
 
This community training center will have three components: kindergarten, literacy and vocational training (TVET). For three years after the construction of the center, the population will be called upon to determine the needs of the center and to learn about its management and self-financing, since after this deadline, the Korean National Commission for UNESCO will hand over all The management of the center to the local population and authorities of Mayange.
According to the 2012 population census, it was noted that 35% of the rural population in Mayange is illiterate. The Bugesera district increased the literacy rate by 37% over a five-year period from 35.9% to 72.9%.

There are 13 schools of nine-year basic education (9YBE), 16 twelve-year basic education schools (12 YBEs), and computer equipment. Visible efforts have been made and the illiterate population, in the absence of formal education, has to be provided with access to training (literacy) which will enable them to read and write and even more to benefit from information technologies Which are growing at incredible growth and whose accessibility has been made easy across the country.
