During the African mission with the American ex-President Bill Clinton Ladislav Dráb met the Rwandan president Paul Kagam. A state program called the “Vision 2020” is currently under way in Rwanda. Its main mission is – with the utilization of predominantly foreign development assistance – to invest into the education of the population. Telecommunication centers equipped with computers, scanners and other office electronics with internet access are being built.
The local inhabitants are being trained in those centers, especially then women. Besides the work with computers they also learn the basics of business. The pupils in elementary schools work with special cheap computers. These are also used in some classes and the pupils complete their homework on them. This program is funded apart from international governments also by private foundations.
