The Special Initiative on Training and Job Creation

The Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH is a federally owned international cooperation enterprise for sustainable development with worldwide operations. GIZ has worked in Rwanda for over 30 years. The primary objectives between the Government of Rwanda and the Federal Republic of Germany are poverty reduction and the promotion of sustainable development. To achieve these objectives, GIZ Rwanda is active in the sectors of Decentralization and Good Governance, Economic Development and Employment Promotion, Energy, and ICT (Information and Communications Technology). 

Creating sufficient opportunities for employment and income generation remains a major challenge on Africa’s as well as Rwanda’s path to sustainable development. The Government of Rwanda has set itself the ambitious target of creating 214,000 jobs annually until 2024. In the face of the country’s growing population and young demographic, this creation of jobs is essential for the population’s future and economic security.

Guided by the principle that targeted investments create jobs, the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) launched the Special Initiative (SI) on Training and Job Creation. Under the brand Invest for Jobs, the Special Initiative seeks to promote investments by European and African companies in selected countries across the continent, including Rwanda. It also seeks to improve working conditions, increase opportunities for professional development or vocational training and preserve jobs that have been put at risk due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
