Project description

The USAID Rwanda Huguka Dukore activity, over the course of five years, prepares the Rwandan youth workforce to meet the needs of an evolving knowledge-based economy that requires 21st century capabilities. The Huguka Dukore activity will provide 40,000 vulnerable youth – 36,000 new youth and 4,000 Akazi Kanoze alumni – with employability skills by scaling up proven successful Akazi Kanoze interventions across 19 of 30 districts countrywide.
