Kigali – Universities are not just schools; they are establishments. They belong to the professors who teach in their classrooms, to the students whose bags adorn the hallway walls and, of course, to the essence and spirit of the quest for knowledge. But they also belong to the neighborhoods and communities in which they reside. A school might only be the size of its walls, but a good school goes way beyond them, and the best – the one thing Rwanda should ever aim for – to build lasting and intimate relationships with them. people with whom they share their world.
The New Times proudly applauds the work done by Unatek, an agriculture and technology school near Rwamagana for its expansion of services – training, courses – to the surrounding community. Education should be a thrilling, dynamic and practical experience, not an isolated ivory tower.
