According to the Minister, these programs are running smoothly even if there are some hindrances to achieving them.

Among the key challenges include few and unsufficient financial means to fulfill these missions.

Howeve,Minister said that  the increase of the national budget especially the one relating to socio-economic welfare is an option to solve the problem.

He also mentioned different homegrown solutions such as Kuremera( giving free assistance to poor),Umuganda(Community Work),TIG, Army Week ,Police Week and Urugerero(A training program reserved for young students  ready to attend University)

These strategies include a increased use of technology for an effective management of economic assets.

Concerning the Ubudehe,He underlined that fact that this policy will undergo some changes involving more parental participation to cater for their children  education.

All of these strategies among others will bring the EDPRS (Economic Development for Poverty Reduction Strategies) to higher level leaving 44,9% of poor people to 30% in the near future.

According to the Prime Minister ,the Economic state of all Rwandans is to be reduced at a significant level 0.35% leaving 0.90%
