Through all the economic and social development debates, it has been emphasized that peoples and their working and lifelong learning skills are a central factor in development. Looking at rural Africa’s lack of robust economic growth and absence of appropriate technologies, it appears technology diffusion into rural communities has failed or is taking place at a very low speed.
The Government of Rwanda is committed to investing in the development of human resources in order to meet the major objective of vision 2020 which is to create a knowledge-based and technology-led economy.
Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) system in Rwanda seeks to create competent and self-reliant citizens to contribute to the economic and social development of the country, thus improving the livelihoods of all Rwandans and sustainably reducing poverty.
Academic institutions have always been key agents in the dissemination of knowledge. The Integrated Polytechnic Regional College of Karongi is driven by the belief that improving access to appropriate technologies in rural Rwanda will help stimulate development and prevent further marginalization in terms of global scientific and technological development.
IPRC Karongi has embarked on a path to establish a state of the art environment for new and innovative ways of training and learning, technology transfer and service to community. Through the hard work of our instructors and students, IPRC Karongi will accomplish tremendous achievements and it will.
