APEFE has been active in Rwanda since 1986 in the area of skills development. The current intervention supports TVET with the objective of equipping youth with market-relevant skills in order to improve their livelihoods. This is achieved through capacity building at macro, meso and micro levels of the TVET system, and includes support to competency-based curriculum development, training of trainers, equipment, income generating activities and entrepreneurship promotion, and developing linkage with the private sector. This programme is implemented in partnership with the Workforce Development Authority and targets the Integrated Polytechnics Regional Center South and vocational and technical secondary schools in the Southern Province.
