EDC - Education Development Center. Kigali, Rwanda.

Nearly 40 percent of Rwanda's population is between the ages of 14-35. Every year there are over 200,000 learners who enter upper secondary school and over 90,000 who enter technical and vocational education and training (TVET) schools. The small formal employment sector cannot absorb all of these graduates and youth unemployment is at 65 percent.
Through the Akazi Kanoze 2 (AK2) project, EDC is working with Rwanda's Ministry of Education to help young people gain the knowledge, skills, and attitudes they need to participate in an expanding economy. At the center of AK2 is the implementation of EDC's Work Ready Now! curriculum and school-to-work transition services in schools throughout the country.
AK2 is a national scale up of the USAID-funded Akazi Kanoze project, begun in 2009, within Rwanda's secondary education system.
