Rwanda

One of Africa's most densely populated and least urbanized countries, Rwanda has few natural resources and minimal industry. An estimated 1 million Rwandans died in the 1994 genocide against the Tutsi, and the country's economy was destroyed. But in recent years, hope and opportunity are beginning to replace despair and poverty.

TechnoServe has been in Rwanda since 2007 and has implemented numerous interventions across the country. We are working with farmers in the coffee and dairy sectors, with orphans in the pineapple sector, and with young people on entrepreneurship to improve the quality of their products and services, equip them to access more lucrative markets, and help them attain a higher standard of living for themselves, their families and their communities.
