Summary of your idea

Having realized that in Rwanda there is no career guidance of children and teenagers, the most children of the country are studying and following the career without considering their inborn talents which can help them to become very competent Rwandans with capabilities of practicing excellently their career. Enquiring, detecting and developing the innovative and entrepreneurial in born childrens talents which lead to the spirit of being self-employers and job creators instead of being employees or job seekers. Delivering Career Guidance and counseling in order to help children and teenagers to know what they will follow according to their aptitude and talents. These include pure sciences, social sciences and some other vocational trainings which are somehow neglected (as Sculpture and ceramics, Graphic arts, Beauty and Aesthetics, Water and Sanitation, Manufacturing, Film making, drawing, music industries, dramatization, public speaking, decoration studies, hair caring, cleaning, sport: football, athletism, etc.). Offering specific courses to children based on their talents. It is in that regard that there should be an Organization which can solve the above problems. The organization is in process of being operating under the name of Education For Talent Development (EFTD). Education For Talent Development (EFTD) will be an ambitious innovative new Organization that will be focusing on developing some neglected talents as above mentioned.It is targeting every Rwandan who want to practice his/her art profession effectively especially young professionals through technical training based on inborn talents that will achieve higher technical and personal skills development.
