Generation Rwanda-UK was founded in 2011 to help marginalised young Rwandans change their lives by giving them access to higher education and equipping them with the skills they need to find employment or to start their own businesses. In Rwanda, 42% of young people are either under- or unemployed. The ‘Entrepreneurship Initiative’ was set up in 2014 offering participants a fully customised and interactive training programme aimed at developing key skills central to starting and running a business. The Fore funded the strengthening of the organisation’s capacity to implement a comprehensive sustainability strategy.
