Educate! was invited by Rwanda’s Ministry of Education in 2016 to serve as a technical advisor to Rwanda’s national curriculum reform, which aims to equip youth with the skills they need to drive the economy, compete on the global stage, and become leaders in their communities. Educate! also supports implementation of the reform through in-school support and teacher training.

Stories from Rwanda
This June students from across Rwanda came to Kigali to compete at Educate!’s first ever National Student Business Club Competition! Students from 11 schools showcased their innovative, eco-friendly, and impactful business products — all designed while still in secondary school.
Educate! was featured in a new study from The Partnership to Strengthen Innovation and Practice in Secondary Education (PSIPSE). The study highlighted Educate!'s experience enhancing teacher quality at scale and detailed a variety of practical lessons on how to design, implement, and scale efforts to train, motivate, and support teachers.
The District and National Student Business Club Competitions are a chance for entrepreneurship students to prove that they possess the creativity and skills to drive Rwanda’s economy.
Juliet, an Educate! Youth Leader, is one of the people at the heart of Educate!’s partnership with the Rwandan government. She, along with ten other Youth Leaders, is helping to fulfill Educate!’s vision of integrating our model into national education systems.
Educate!’s work in Rwanda is one of 19 innovative projects profiled in a new publication by Solutions for Youth Employment (S4YE). The report highlights Educate!’s model in Rwanda for supporting young entrepreneurs to generate socially responsible business ideas that factor in their community’s needs and opportunities. As a high-potential project, Educate!’s experience and proven impact can be used to influence the design of second generation projects.
