This programme helped me to step out of my business and look at it from outside. Being able to compare what should be done and what I was doing helped me make better decisions. Last year I had just started a new business and I used all that I learnt to make sure I started with the right structure. I am also grateful for all the content, the learning materials and tools. I appreciate how the AMI team follows up very closely to see how we are fairing on.

Building skills in Rwanda’s hospitality & tourism sector through the Hanga Ahazaza Initiative
Hanga Ahazaza, meaning ‘create the future’ in Kinyarwanda, is a new initiative designed to increase employment opportunities for 30,000 Rwandan youth over the next five years. The initiative, from the Mastercard Foundation, is focused on the Hospitality and Tourism sector.
Hanga Ahazaza is supported by a collection of partners from the education, development, and private sectors. Working together, they will support small businesses and entrepreneurs in the tourism and hospitality sector through increased access to financial services, training and by providing young people with tools to develop the skills needed to be successful employees.
