Kamonyi — South Korean Ambassador to Rwanda, Heon Lee, Wednesday, commissioned a Korean-funded community development centre in Nyarubaka Sector, Kamonyi District.
The Rwf 42 million centre was set up by the Korean International Cooperation Agency (KOICA), through the Global Civic Sharing (GCS) – a Korean initiative focusing on community development.
The multipurpose facility will be used for such activities as training in agriculture, livestock and language; which will be run by volunteers by next year, according to Hong Min-Kee, the GCS Project Coordinator.
Ambassador Heon Lee said that such community based projects were in the spirit of strengthening bilateral ties between the two countries.
The visiting Secretary General of Global Civic Sharing, Cho Hyeo-Joo, said: “With this new start, GCS hopes to contribute towards improving education in the area.”
The Mayor of Kamonyi, Jacques Rutsinga, noted that the Korean government has supported various sectors in the district, in areas of health, economic activities and educational projects.
