“The internet is a needed public utility, as much as water and electricity.” Paul Kagame, President of Rwanda

Rwanda is one of the most rapidly transforming countries on the African continent. According to the World Bank, the country has attained a high annual gross domestic product (GDP), with growth rates averaging 7.6%. Between 2000 and 2018, the country has moved from being a $1.7 billion economy to a $9.5 billion economy. These achievements were driven by the aspiration to become a knowledge-based society and the “Vision 2020”, which aims for Rwandans to be healthier, more educated and prosperous.
