While the government of Rwanda embarked on sensitizing residents to create jobs, measures are being taken to extend electricity supply to remote areas to support development.
With infrastructure like electricity, it's easier for residents to create projects and earn income, says Doris Melchiade, in charge of infrastructure in Nyabihu district.
Although its location makes it difficult to get electricity, everything possible is being done so that Nyabihu residents access electricity.
According to Doris Melchiade, electricity energy has been extended to 16 sites in Nyabihu district from July 2011 to April 2012.
Also, 329 homes, some schools like Kabatwa and health centres got electricity for lighting.
It is hoped that in the near future, residents will have clean water and electricity to help them in their development journey, Doris Melchiade adds.
The government's aim is to have a big number of residents accessing electricity energy in remote areas of Rwanda.
