Direct beneficiaries upbeat as Don Bosco Rango TVET School gets modernized

In 130 Km from the capital City of Kigali to the Southern Province in Huye District, there is an ongoing construction of class rooms and administration bloc at Don Bosco Rango Technical and Vocational Education Training School.

This construction project was financed by the Germany Federal Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development through Don Bosco Mondo which also distributed the financial support via Don Bosco Tech Africa as a coordinating body of all the Salesian Technical Schools in Africa and Madagascar.

Once completed, this school is set to bring positive impacts as highlighted by various categories of people at Don Bosco Rango.

Iradukunda is currently working at DB Rango during the COVID 19 lockdown which has led to the closure of Schools

Iradukunda Olivier, a Student at Don Bosco Rango TVET School said “These infrastructures will play a big role to us. As we are going to have such a school, we will study safely. Another thing is that having such a building in Huye District, it is another step-in infrastructure development. There are not many in this country. “

“So, this will help us in our studies, with modern equipment that meets required standards we are sure the skills we will be getting from will be much more competitive than previous years” He added.

The new building under construction will host students of Culinary Arts and Hairdressing as planned.

It will be equipped with modern equipment in both sections in order to allow the school to provide quality training that will respond to the needs of the job market.

Niyonsaba Marie Gorette is a Trainer at Don Bosco Rango TVET School.

She said that “This school is developing very fast due to the support provided by the benefactors. For instance, today we are constructing new classrooms in order to support Culinary Arts and Hairdressing trades and this will facilitate students to study in a safe environment”

Niyonsaba added that for African Great Lakes Province which covers Rwanda, Uganda and Burundi “This school will foster the development in general and specifically to the students and surrounding community who will be able to easily get services related to the area of trainings that are provided here at Don Bosco Rango TVET School.”

As explained by Father Jean Pierre TURABANYE, sdb, Director of Don Bosco Rango TVET School, “this year the school has benefited from the financial support to construct a new building to host classrooms and administrative bloc as part of Don Bosco TVET Schools global modernization program.”
