Nyarugunga, 29 June 2013
President Kagame today participated in Umuganda, the monthly community service alongside residents of Nyarugunga sector. Following a first visit alongside President Museveni during which the promise of a 12 year basic education school was made, President Kagame joined hands with the residents of Nyarugunga to build drainage that will serve the newly completed school as well as the community.
Addressing the residents of Nyarugunga, President Kagame emphasized the importance of perseverance in achieving self reliance:
“Development begins with a change of mindset and must be followed by action. If our determination is followed by action, nothing will stand in the way of Rwanda achieving its goals.”
Recognizing the role of partnerships in building the Nyarugunga 12 Year Basic education school, President Kagame reminded residents to use this support to build their own capacity to contribute to transforming Rwanda:
“Development is up to each and every one of you. Let us begin with what is within our means, work even harder together for the benefits of all Rwandans.”
