On September 22, 2023, when 526 youth people who completed 526 youth graduate after training in Work Readiness and Job Placement the training of practical skills and were awarded by Akazi Kanoze Access. Min. Claudette Irere, who participated in the ceremony and was the chief guest, thanked the young people who completed the training (courses) for their behavior and skills, and asked them four important things they should do and what should characterize them in the work they are going to do in Tourism and Hotels.

The Minister of State for Education, Claudette Irere, asked the youth people who studied who was training provided by Akazi Kanoze Access, to be characterized by good behavior when they go to work and be productive, the knowledge they have been given so that they can improve their work and set an example for others.

Min. Claudette Irere asked the youth to be polite and look back and lift up their less fortunate peers to help them progress and gain knowledge.

She said: “I especially want to thank those of you who have taken this course, it is easy to finish studying any other course and say that it is enough, and you always sit and get frustrated, this kind of training comes and you say that this is for others, but you wake up in the morning and call them without them. Every day, this is something that one cannot fail to thank you for, so what I ask is that it is good to study but I have a request, let me tell you, I ask you about four things, first of all, continue to be motivated to do a good and better job, that is what will show the difference between you and others everyone, that’s what will make you where you are today and tomorrow you will be promoted, the next day you will be promoted, the next day you will go to work outside, continue to work hard and improve.”

The third thing I want to ask you is that you should train yourself in languages, something related to languages, we cannot promote tourism in Rwanda by speaking only in Rwandan language , someone said there that they speak English, French and Swahili, that’s what you learn and you know very well. the truth will taste, and finally, I ask you what you add when they say ‘Send the elevator down’ (send the elevator down), when you are helped and learn and develop, you have the responsibility to help others, I ask you very much in your capacity, wherever you go, many of you are still young , look back and say ‘how much can I help others so that they can also improve?’, when we work as donors we have things to go by, but we don’t put this thing in place, so that today he was helped to learn, he feels that he has a responsibility to help others, Do you agree with these four things? If you do them u will not ashamed of Akazi Kanoze Access.”

As we know, our country is mainly made up of young people, more than 60% of our country’s population is young people, young people need to live well, they need work to support their families, what do we do when we give them different skills there are also programs to continue to help them to prepare well to go to the labor market, which is the program that the youth we are working on went through after graduating from various technical schools, through the program that prepares them well to find themselves in the labor market; where they learn how to behave in the labor market, increase their language skills, increase their knowledge of how to work for themselves, how to talk to investors, how to talk to big companies that provide money to start projects, that’s all they have been studying for days .
