“We have had many cases where your colleagues sell the tools we give them, but we shall not tolerate this any more,” cautioned Sayinzoga.

The training that was organized by Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) in collaboration with RDRC saw trainees receive various electronic tools and sewing machines.

“This has been given to me as a gift that can transform my life and the family, so I can not sell it,” said Johnson Binamungu, one of the beneficiaries who received a sewing machine, saying the skills acquired will open another chapter in his life

JICA expert, Maho Harada, said her organization will not only continue supporting the disabled, but all Rwandans in general to transform their lives.

She explained that the training was part of a three year project that will see about 2000 ex-combatants trained in various fields.
