The Rwanda #YACA (Youth Alliance for Climate Actions) aka RYACA is pleased to implement an ambitious project “Promoting Youthpreneurship and Enviropreneurship in Rwanda –#YEPRwanda2014” with the support of the US Embassy in Kigali.

The project is an awareness and action campaign aiming to promote new concepts in Rwanda which are Youthpreneurship and Enviropreneurship amongst youth through music and capacity building for (social) entrepreneurship and environment conservation.


In RYACA, we seek to develop an eco-conscientious generation of youth in Rwanda who act as change makers and green job creators and green entrepreneurs.


The project seeks to hire 40 volunteers (20 boys and 20 girls) will be empowered as youthpreneurs and enviropreneurs, and who will participate in the following activities:

• Promote the project on social media (Facebook, twitter…) with the following hashtag #YEPRwanda2014, by liking and sharing project activities;

• Promote the network Rwanda YACA (Youth Alliance for Climate Action) Facebook page by inviting their friends on Facebook to like our page. Each volunteer is expected to bring at least 100 likes by end of the project;

• Participate in a video clip of the song that will be produced as part of the project;

• Participate in a training workshop on entrepreneurship for climate change adaptation;

• Promote the use of English for environment conservation;
