“WHY IRIS HUB?”
Iris Hub was born after a thorough research on the levels and causes of unemployment in Rwanda which stood 13.2% overall and 18% for graduates. This reality ignited our cause to change the narrative of an “idle intern” who gets minimal job readiness skills if at all into a competent and an all rounded potential employee while giving organizations value for their money. Rwanda is facing an escalating problem of high unemployment and a dissatisfaction from educated youth to find job opportunities. Lack of a working and sustainable student-business relationship is creating a major limitation for the students to get meaningful employment, even after undergoing the mandatory internship. Iris Hub, we believe that the Rwandan ecosystem is lacking an effective platform where the university students can connect to potential employers and be a part of building the future of Rwanda....Before they graduate!
Gathering multidisciplinary groups of students and let them work with an aim of speak, creating, innovate, new sustainable solutions for their communities and future employers with creating a more integrated relationship between the students and the potential employers.
