As the world adopts to the information age, citizen of the planet we inhabit are quickly transforming their way of life to suit the new times by transcending the old civilization that based human interaction to race, color, sex, religion, geographical location etc. The world has become a community of civilised people who are using information to reach out for goods and services that can satisfy their needs and wants.

Almost a decade ago, our country made what seemed to be a radical resolve. By embracing a vision codenamed "Vision 2020" The country sought to transform the country from an old administrative tradition to an information based society. At that time almost ten years ago, many saw this as a nightmare. Today one out of ten Rwandans owns a mobile phone which device he can use not just to to make and receive calls, but to make calculation, send text message, take pictures and even receive internet.

Today Rwanda is one of the big internet hot spots. You can connect to high speed internet from the remotest corner of our country be it in the forest, on the top of a mountain or on the lake. Our population is more connected than it has ever been before.

As that vision continues to spread root, through spread of infrastructure such as the laying of a fiber optic backbone nationwide, establishment of tele-centers, training of the population and many others, Rwanda looks set for the challenges of the Global Millennium Development Goals.

Kirehe District is one of Nation's districts that has refused to stay behind. We have faith in the "Vision" and our resolve is as good as our country's.
