The Director of ICCROM stressed that the Rwanda Heritage Hub is a good way to create jobs and reduce unemployment

The Director General of the Society for the Preservation of Cultural and Natural Resources, Dr. Webber Ndoro, said that this is a good way to fight unemployment, especially among African youth.

He said, “We are starting the project of these institutions in Africa, we wanted to bring something with a difference that will allow the youth to work to develop them but is connected to the culture and heritage of Africa.”

He went on to say that it is a project that they want to reach other African countries.

The Council of Culture says that many people, especially young people, consider heritage as ancient things that can only be kept in museums. On the other hand, there are opportunities for productivity that a person can use to improve themselves.

The youth at this center appreciated the opportunity they were given to learn about the heritage and culture of Rwanda
