The Salvation Army, an international movement, is an evangelical part of the universal Christian Church.
Its message is based on the Bible. Its ministry is motivated by the love of God.
Its mission is to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and to meet human needs in his name without discrimination. It was founded in 1865 by William and Catherine Booth in London and currently it is operating in 1
28 countries worldwide.
The Government of Rwanda has instituted several reforms in the management of government affairs and its institutions. The Vision 2020 is the key instrument that sets the stage for other initiatives such as the EDPRS 2 to drive the process of development in Rwanda. In the education sector, several reforms have been initiated. The Education Sector Strategic Plan 2013-2018 and the TVET Sub-Sector policy 2008 have highlighted the reforms in the respective areas.
The challenges of providing education and TVET are linked to the global trends.
