    One contributing factor is that Rwanda suffers from a poor education system where only 68% of first-graders end up completing all six years of primary education.

  • key statistics :

    • 39 % population under poverty line in Rwanda

    • 75% of youth attend outside restaurants

    • youth spend much time on social media

    • 1 out three youth takes uses social media in a day

    • The population of Rwamagana district is 318,000 and about 53% are aged 19 years or younger. People aged 65 years and above make up 4%. The majority of the population is young, with about 82% still under 40 years of age (NISR, 2010).

How should we fight against the poverty in youth from rural-urban areas of Rwanda-Eastern Province, Rwamagana District?

  • Youth unemployment rate in Rwanda increased to 30.90% in the second quarter of 2021 from 21.70 percent in the first quarter of 2021.(NISR, 2021)
  • Rwanda has 13.11 millions , where 50.8% are female,49.2% are males and 17.5% live in urban areas,while 82.55 live in rural areas.(NISR, 2021)
  • 4.12 millions of Rwandans use internet ,the number of social media users are 6.5% of total Rwandan population(NISR, 2021)
