Airtel backs businesses for People with Disabilities

Airtel backs businesses for People with Disabilities

Majority of them are known to vie the streets begging and are looked at as a waste to the communities they live in, being disabled, to many would mean loss of hope to achieve your ambitions.

But this with the support from Airtel Rwanda will be history as people living with disabilities are setting up businesses to earn income and position them in the society.

“Our core function at Ijwi Rya Bose is to empower persons with disabilities by giving them the opportunity to reach their full potential,” said Jean Marie Vianney Icyitegetse, Managing Director of Ijwi Rya Bose

He adds, “Enterprise is one of them and we are glad to have been able to make this possible with the support from Airtel Rwanda.”

Ijwi Rya Bose is a specialist media group focusing and promoting rights of persons with disabilities in Rwanda.

Together with Airtel, Ijwi Rya Bose contributed an assortment of business products and incentives to Rwandans with disabilities through Jya Mu Bandi Mwana; an umbrella organization for the group. The contribution will initially support 40 persons.

But, the programme is set to cover the whole country over the next year and Airtel Rwanda and IJWI RYA BOSE are currently working out a plan to support over 100 people with disabilities all over the country.

Accordingly, Ijwi Rya Bose has contributed products worth Rwf500, 000 while Airtel Rwanda has contributed trade materials and will support the group with basic entrepreneurship skills to help jumpstart their business.

“The products will help the beneficiaries’ startup businesses and earn a living to better their livelihood,” said Denise Umunyana, the Airtel head of corporate communications and CSR said,

Umunyana says that the Airtel contribution will include Airtel airtime and simcards, shelter umbrellas, t-shirts and tables.

“Disability is a matter of perception. If you can do just one thing well, you will be needed by someone. Today’s beneficiaries will be needed by our customers to provide products and services to them,” she added

This therefore   creates  yet a another milestone for the current shift of telecoms  from sponsoring concerts  and  promotions   to impacting   people’s lives mainly  setting a   business  jumpstart  for  their  livelihood.

“This contribution by airtel shows that the telecom is not only profit making but also cares for the wellbeing of Rwandan people,” said Romalis NIYOMUGABO, president of the National Council of Persons with Disabilities

Accordingly, the this initiative will build the entrepreneurship of the beneficiaries  thus being able  to start their dream  business and contribute to the private sector growth  needed to   spur the  economy .

SoSoMa industries wins Africa’s SME award

SoSoMa industries wins Africa’s SME award

Finally, this year’s top award for SME of the Year went to SoSoMa Industries, another Rwandan SME specialising in agro-business.

“We wanted to celebrate SMEs by spotlighting champions capable of transforming the continent and creating value,” explained Amadou Kane, former Finance Minister of Senegal, who was selected to lead the awards panel. “They are the torch-bearers of the Africa SME Champions community.”

Africa SME Champions is so much more than just a conference. We will offer the business and institutional community a framework to meet their needs and enable them to interact with one other.

SMEs need money, but they especially need support as well,” explains Didier Acouetey, founder of the specialist recruitment agency AfricSearch and creator of the event. “This is why we decided to launch Africa SME Champions, a platform to support African SMEs.”

Scheduled to launch in early 2015, this platform aims first to offer support tools to SMEs based on information derived from the fifteen or so thematic sessions presented at the forum.

These sessions dealt with issues such as writing a business plan, marketing techniques and customer relations.

The partner institutions and enterprises, including the IFC, the African Development Bank, OCP, investment funds and consulting firms, will all contribute input to this database of expertise.

In addition to the website, the Africa SME Champions platform will offer very concrete support and consulting services.

“Once SMEs find the information they need on the website, a dedicated team will be on hand to connect them to the relevant funds and consultants who can help them to raise the necessary funds. An entire ecosystem will be available in support of African Champions,” explains Didier Acouetey.

The Africa SME Champions Forum community has also made plans to create the “African Champion” label.

This label will be attached to SMEs based on several criteria, such as their ability to create jobs, their role in regional integration, their implementation of good governance principles, etc. With this label, they will be able to enjoy favourable conditions in the partner countries. In addition to tax advantages, they will also be able to access public procurement contracts, recruitment aid and guarantee funds.

The pan-African bank Ecobank, an event partner, has itself announced the creation of Ecobank SME Clubs. Albert Essien, the bank’s general director, described this project:

“SMEs merit special attention. These clubs will be privileged spaces for dialogue to better evaluate funding needs and make it easier to obtain funding. The criteria for joining the clubs will be extremely simple.”

The Africa SME Champions Forum (http://www.africa-smechampions.com) closed on 12 November in Dakar, but its work in support of African champions is only just beginning.

Bringing together over 300 SMEs and around 100 African economic and political policymakers, these two days of dialogue produced the foundations for a very concrete roadmap.

This roadmap will guide the actions of the Africa SME Champions community in anticipation of the next forum, to be held in Nairobi in November 2015.

The forum also offered an opportunity to recognise champions. The African SME Champions Awards, sponsored by the African Guarantee Fund, honoured three enterprises, which were selected following a rigorous and transparent process. The director of Village Group in Rwanda was awarded the Young Entrepreneur Award. Tabaki, a Kenyan SME, won the Regional SME Award

Language affecting local contractors

Language affecting local contractors

Rwandan contractors are losing lucrative tenders in East Africa because they cannot comprehend bid documents written in the English Language. This is according to Donatien Mungwararera, director of The Private Sector Federation Rwanda (PSF).

“Though we carryout periodic trainings in languages, we do not reach everyone,” said Mungwararera, who advised traders to try their best to learn “the most commonly spoken languages in the region, especially English and Swahili, to enhance their competitiveness.”

Laying credence to the PSF director’s claim, a local supplier of construction materials, Enock Kamugisha, told this reporter that he lost tenders on four occasions because he could not understand all the requirements stated in the bid documents.

“Bids are drafted in English; and there are many technical terms that we fail to understand,” he said.

PSF, a professional organization dedicated to promoting the interests of the Rwandan business community has noted that learning the languages will boost the growth of Rwanda’s private sector..

According to Rwanda’s 2013 Manpower Survey released earlier this year, most Rwandan business people do not understand English and Swahili. This has made them less competitive within the region.

To help solve this challenge, the Ministry of East African Community Affairs has developed a new language policy that will offer Swahili and English lessons at an early age.

“We have a policy that aims at teaching Swahili from lower secondary education. The policy is already being implemented by the Ministry of Education,” said Jean Pierre Niyitegeka, the director of social development centre at the ministry.

L’Amb. Gatete Claver et Olivier Nizeyimana qui préside  ATPR

L’Association Rwandaise des Transporteurs des passagers (ATPR) a contribué au Fond du Développent Agaceriro (Agaciro Development Fund Corporate Trust.), avec 67,2millions de Francs Rwandais. Ce fond a récemment atteint plus de 23,8 miliards de Frws déjà collectés.

« Cette contribution est une façon de remercier le gouvernement pour avoir assuré un environnement favorable du business dans le pays », a déclaré Olivier Nizeyimana, président de ATPR, lors de la remise de ce chèque à l’Amb Claver Gatete, Ministre des Finances et de la Planification Economique (MINECOFIN en sigle en anglais) à l’Hôtel Umubano à Kigali.

Nizeyimana a fait savoir que cet argent a été contribué par les membres de l’association qui sont des propriétaires des véhicules de transport publique et les employés de ce groupe. Il a ajouté que l’association va continuer la sensibilisation de ses membres pour qu’ils contribuent encore plus d’argent pour AGACIRO.

Gatete a salué les efforts de cette association pour appuyer l’initiative du Rwanda vers l’autosuffisance. Amb. Gatete a exhorté cette association et à tous les Rwandais de continuer leur contribution dans le Fond d’Agaciro. Le Ministre a rappelé que le gouvernement dépendait entièrement de l’aide étrangère pendant trois ans après le génocide contre les Tutsi de1994. Il a souligné que ceci a beaucoup changé car le Rwanda finance actuellement une grande partie du budget.

« Même si nous ne sommes pas encore au point de financer totalement le budget national, à l’aide de l’argent collecté localement, il est nécessaire de créer les initiatives, comme le Fond d’Agaciro, pour que en cas des problèmes financiers, nous ayons une position de repli », a expliqué Gatete.

Ce Fond qui a été inauguré en Août 2012, est le premier Fond Rwandais de souveraineté basé sur les dons volontaires des Rwandais, dont des individus, des entreprises, et des institutions publiques. Ce Fond vise, à faire le Rwanda un pays économiquement indépendant. Une grande partie de ces 23.8 milliards Frws déjà collectés ont été investis et le bénéfice annuel varie entre 8 et 12%.
