Rwanda is an East African country with about 14 million people.


COL’s current work in Rwanda is primarily in the areas of higher education, teacher education, and technical and vocational skills development. Rwanda benefits from activities organised under the auspices of the Southern African Development Community Centre for Distance Education. Learners from Rwanda have also benefited from COL’s open online courses and other resources.


Partnerships are fundamental to COL’s work. Strategic partnerships allow COL to broaden its reach and engage at global, regional and national levels, while implementation partnerships support COL’s work in communities and institutions across Commonwealth Member States. Partnerships include multilateral organisations, regional bodies, national governments, government agencies, foundations, civil society organisations, public and private (not-for-profit) institutions and the private sector. COL partnerships assist in improving and extending teaching and learning services to people in the developing Commonwealth.
