BACKGROUND:

The Technical School of Musha (officially Ecole Technique St. Kizito de Musha: www.etsk.org) is a private, rural boarding school for up to 350 students founded in 2008 to respond to the need for trade education at the high school level. Students are motivated to learn the skills necessary to find employment or continue on to university

The school exists on a relatively modern campus, surrounded by beautiful hills and lakes in a safe, rural setting, an easy one-hour car or bus ride west to the modern capital of Kigali. Rwanda. At 5000’ elevation, the climate is close to ideal, with year-round sunshine, highs in mid-eighties and overnight lows in low sixties.

After an intensive visit to the school in Jan. 2017, an American and Italian couple formed a “Committee for Education Expansion*” and decided to help the school by financing and setting up a student learning center and a comprehensive program to improve the English language skills of both teachers and students.  As a key part of this program, the new Manager of the Student Learning Center will work together with a native English speaking teacher.  Both positions are financed separately by the Committee, apart from the school budget.

Screening, hiring, and training of candidates will be done by Sue Sawyer from the Committee for Education Expansion*: suecs@yahoo.com
