New hospitality training facility opens in Rwanda


A few days ago, a new privately-owned hospitality and tourism training center was opened in Kibagabaga outside Kigali, and training is expected to commence any time now. The institute is mainly aimed at providing vocational training for young women aiming to make a career in the hotel or tourism sectors.

A new purpose-built campus is expected to open sometime in 2011, where up to 250 students can be on campus at any given time, compared with presently only 50 enrolled in courses.

The opening was witnessed by the head of the tourism and conservation division within the Rwanda Development Board, Mrs. Rosette Rugamba, in the company of the American ambassador, giving support to the initiative.
