The Rwanda Revenue Authority (RRA) is a government revenue collection agency established by the Parliament of Rwanda. The RRA is charged with enforcing, assessing, collecting, and accounting for the various taxes imposed in Rwanda. As part of its work to support digitalisation and improve service delivery, the RRA is training and certifying its staff to the ICDL standard.
The project aims to train and certify 500 permanent employees using ICDL. The pilot project has a goal to train 40 employees, after which the best 20 candidates will undertake a ‘Train the Trainer’ programme. These qualified trainers will then train 460 employees across the country.
The pilot project commenced in July at Butare, Southern Province of Rwanda, at one of the best computer training facilities in the country.
