China's C&H Garments has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Rwanda's Workforce Development Authority (WDA) to enable students from technical and vocational institutions to secure training and employment opportunities.

The deal signed in Rwanda's capital Kigali, is worth $516,731 and will facilitate training of least 600 students in embroidery before being taken on for work at the factory, Xinhua has reported.

Anna An, C&H Garments' manager, told reporters after the signing that experts at the factory will equip Rwandan students with various textile industry skills.

“We need more workers at the factory and this will be an opportunity for Rwandan vocational graduates to get hands-on skills training, and as well job opportunities. We are glad to contribute towards addressing unemployment challenges in Rwanda,” she said.
The training is scheduled to begin on February 22 and will cover a period of 6 months.

The WDA said 30 students will also be sent to China for special textile training.

Jerome Gasana, WDA Director-General, said the deal is part of the government's efforts to boost the National Employment Programme (NEP) in the country.

“We have a challenge of unemployment and this partnership will promote skills among young graduates. The garment industry is crucial to our country's growth in terms of exports sector,” he said, adding 300 graduate students were taken up by the factory last year.

Rwanda's unemployment rate stands at 3.4 per cent, according to a 2012 official report. (SH)
