The Youth Workforce Development Project aims to improve employability skills and increase stable self-employment for vulnerable youth.& For the purposes of this project, vulnerable youth is defined as working-age women and men ages 16-30 with educational attainment of greater than six years of basic education but less than nine years of basic education, i.e. those who are unable to enter into the formal TVET system, have few alternative pathways for education-to-employment, and are thus less likely to secure stable forms of employment and income.& Vulnerable is also defined through the lens of those living below the poverty threshold, i.e. those earning less than $1.25 a day.

The government of Rwanda has made great strides in developing policies and strategies to support women’s empowerment and the advancement of gender equality.  Additionally, numerous mechanisms have been instituted to support their implementation.  However, the existing inequalities have been ingrained in Rwandan culture and society and require persistent and consistent long-term efforts to bring about change.

Project LEARN seeks to improve the quality of education for all students in primary school - including girls, students with disabilities, children living in extreme poverty, and other vulnerable groups – so as to increase the ability of Rwandan children to succeed in school. Attention to gender analysis is essential for Project LEARN to strategically influence the experience of primary school so that it will support continued learning and opportunity for children who are currently vulnerable.
