RULINDO – Up to 20 senior six best performing girls, on Friday, completed an intensive 3-week CISCO training course, at Tumba College of Technology (TCT) in Rulindo District.
The girls, drawn from all provinces, were each awarded a certificate, for successfully completing courses in IT applications and IT essentials.
Imbuto Foundation’s board member, Rita Zirimwabagabo, who represented the First Lady, Mrs Jeanette Kagame, at the function, called on the girls to maintain the spirit of hard work and self discipline while pursuing their further studies at University.
