I have completed the Bachelor degree in Laboratory studies but I stood up jobless for a while. It means that job applicants are so many and different requirements may be one of the obstacles for getting a job.At first, when I came here for application, I was with my wife. But unfortunately, having found it too far from home, we decided that she had to stay at home and I am the one to teach her what I learnt.

Another internee Placidia Yamuragiye has completed her advanced level in Accountancy. Though she has a driving license, she thereafter decided to acquire art skills on the previous knowledge.
