In order to proceed with our project of education for Rwandan engineers, we had conversation with key persons in Rwanda as we had dinner!
We had guests, who can be seen in the first picture; Mr. Alex, CEO of Rwanda ICT Chamber (on the left), Mr. Paul from Ministry of ICT in Rwanda (on the right), Mr. Samuel, who used to work in the embassy (the third from the right), Mrs. Oshiro and Mr. Akima from La torche, Inc. (on the left, with a child).


Mr. Alex and Mr. Paul are staying in Japan for a fortnight for JICA training.
It is said that even JICA staffs cannot easily meet Mr. Alex, but he spared time for us!

We heard Christmas songs in the restaurant and we enjoyed talking about our culture on Christmas.
Christianity and Islam are predominant in Africa, and the majority of Rwandan people are Christian. Christmas is important for them!



Once we started discussing the business, the guests positively showed us their chance of cooperation. Mr. Alex even suggests lending the space for the project for free!

DIVE INTO CODEは、ルワンダ展開に必要な、現地の施設・強力な繋がりをほとんど確保することができました。お陰様で生徒さんも集まりそうです。

Now DIVE INTO CODE has access to the necessary facilities, and moreover, connections with reliable, wonderful people.
We have partners to help reaching future students.



In order to start our business in Rwanda, we need to guarantee the employment for the students after their graduation from our curriculum, and also we need to hire mentors to teach the students.


DIVE INTO CODEでは、一年間の活動の実績として、現地ルワンダに卒業生が3人います。
DIVE INTO CODEのカリキュラムにそって教育サービスの提供が可能なメンター候補が誕生しています。

DIVE INTO CODE already has three graduates in Rwanda as the outcome of our work for more than one year, which means we have potential mentors who can teach using our curriculum.


Fund-raising is necessary now. We will accelerate this project through crowd funding etc.


If you are interested in business in Africa or Rwanda, or bridging between Japan and the world, we are looking forward to your message!
Feel free to contact us please.
