I will highlight our experiences, growth, and the positive impact the TechAffinity has had on both our careers and Rwanda as a whole.

My arrival as a female operations coordinator brought a fresh perspective and a celebration of diversity. I was well welcomed, included, and highly supported. The nurturing environment I experienced stands as a testament to TechAffinity’s commitment to fostering inclusivity. This has not only positively impacted my career trajectory but has also contributed to a more balanced and empowered tech workforce in Rwanda.

This nurturing approach exemplifies how TechAffinity invests in its employees’ growth, contributing to Rwanda’s skilled workforce.
