Client Highlights: BAG Innovation

BAG Innovation is a for-profit organisation, created four years ago which aims at increasing its impact in Rwanda and East Africa by providing an experience-based learning model to students across the region. This is achieved by extending the experience-based learning model to all University students in Rwanda and East Africa, which would reach ​more than 4,000,000 students and recent University graduates. The team at BAG has extensive knowledge and understanding of student development at universities and this has placed us in a unique position to help graduates match their skills to roles and companies.

The primary beneficiaries of this innovative project are university students and postgraduates in Africa. BAG innovation partners with the University of Rwanda which is the biggest university in Rwanda to roll out the developed technology with all their students starting in May 2021.
