The Permanent Secretary of the United Kingdom Department for International Development (DFID), Matthew Rycroft is in a three day visit to Rwanda, a visit that will underline the depth of the UK-Rwanda partnership ahead of the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting in Kigali in June 2020.
Rycroft, who visited the Kigali Genocide Memorial, expressed emotional sentiments over what he witnessed at the Memorial and reiterated UK’s support in the digitalization process of the Genocide Memorial Archives.
DFID has provided
support worth over 1 billion Euros in key areas such as land tenure, economic
growth, social protection and education; including the provision of 3.8 million
textbooks to primary school children across the country.
Rycroft highlighted the importance of DFID’s programs to the country.
Some of the
projects that the DFID Permanent Secretary is set to visit include a Tea
Programme in Nyaruguru Province, which is a partnership between Unilever,
Luxmi, the Wood Foundation, the Gatsby Charitable Foundation and DFID.
Rycroft will also meet with the team from AMPERSAND Rwanda Ltd, an energy and mobility start-up company piloting electric motorcycles aimed at reducing carbon emissions across Kigali.
