Rwanda-China Alumni Organization (RCAO)
Rwanda-China Alumni Organization (RCAO) is a Non-Governmental, Non-political Organization founded by former graduates from China. The Organization is headquartered in Kigali-Rwanda and its members are all those who graduated from China and those who attended training from Chinese Institutions at least for three Months. The membership registration is free up to date and members will increase year by year. The organization was established to make the linkage between the graduates, share ideas and opportunities for mutual benefits among members. The organization will also be the link between Rwandans and Chinese communities by providing skilled labors on the Rwandan market for Chinese investors, companies and individuals looking different services in the country.
Regarding the organization's achievement and future plans, so far we have successfully registered our Organization with RGB which is not an easy task because you need to go step by step from grassroots level through cell, Sector, District to the RGB ( Rwanda Governance Board ). We have also successfully accomplished some of the charity activities such as visiting refugees and supply them with TV flat screen and food stuffs, paid medical insurance for 300 less privileged people and poor people; visited genocide widows association and supported them with cash and many other social activities in pipeline. We are also at a final stage for the Alumni Website construction, potential members database being developed. Our plans; even though subject to being improved, in addition to social activities we intend to enforce ties between Rwandans and Chinese through Education & Cultural activities and cooperation between Rwandans who graduated from China for mutual development. We also started process of having close collaboration with Chinese Nationals living/working in Rwanda for helping each other and mutual development.
