Rwanda 2020

Rwanda 2020 is a great example of an African country taking the initiative to develop itself and become self-sustaining without depending on foreign aid to survive. What I really like about the Rwandan model is the fact that its not based in political talk but rather market research to find out what the country needs, and a transparent master plan to show where funds will be used to make their goals a reality.

Another fact to appreciate is the date 2020. That means the current Rwandan president, Paul Kagame, will not be in office when this goal is realized. That is a politician attempting to leave a legacy for his successors to follow, and that is a quality not found in many African leaders.

This is a truly remarkable undertaking and I encourage everyone to read about Rwanda 2020 and track its progress, and if anyone has recently visited Kigali, the capital city of Rwanda, I would appreciate some pictures of the progress being made.
