Application Open to the Young Citizen Training Program (YCTP 2021) in Kigali


The Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung Rwanda (FES) is initiating a residential capacity building program (full scholarship) for young professionals known as Young Citizen Training Program (YCTP) 2021 in Kigali.

The YCTP aims to provide professional skills and knowledge for young Rwandans to ensure their role as active citizens in the socio-economic development of Rwanda.

The FES is running similar programs in other countries and our office wants to introduce this program in 2021 for the second time in Kigali (in our working lines “Good Governance” and “Social Protection”).

The objective is to support the strategies of the Rwandan Government to engage its citizens from Ministries, Trade Union, NGOs and Academia and to bring decision makers in contact with young responsible women and men.
