Like the United States, Rwanda is very involved in their education system. They currently have a one child, one laptop plan in place. They are also really good at making sure that the teachers are adhering to teaching standards and providing their pupils with a high quality education and have created benchmarks that the children must reach before they can advance to the next phase of their education.
Rwanda is a landlocked developing country in central Africa, which is recovering from the 1994 civil war and genocide in which up to one million people were killed. Economic activity and tourism are on the rise in Rwanda. Hotels and guesthouses are adequate in Kigali, the capital, and in major towns, but are limited in remote areas.
