Rwanda Community in Darfur (Diaspora) has opened a show room that will promote investment, tourism, products, culture and progress of Rwanda to the communities in the Sudan.
The show room, located in -El Fasher, was launched on January 19, 2013, by the United Nations African Union Hybrid Mission in Darfur (UNAMID) Force Commander Lt Gen Patrick Nyamvumba.
This comes as a follow up of the recommendations made during the General Assembly of Rwanda Community in Darfur (Diaspora) held on 7 December 2012.
Lt Gen Patrick Nyamvumba said that the Rwanda Show Room that was opened recently in Darfur will promote investment and tourism for the country since it encompasses the showcasing of a variety of Rwandan art crafts, traditional clothes and other items that are made in Rwanda.
The center will also enable members of the international community within UNAMID to buy items that are made from Rwanda including, but not limited to, Rwanda tea, coffee, Hot pepper (Akabanga), juice, honey and other such items.
The Show Room will include a daily cultural display program where many people within UNAMID will be informed and exposed to the Rwandan development, culture, and its historical background. An electronic virtual tour of Rwanda is also planned as soon as possible.
Nyamvumba urged UNAMID members and staff to visit the Rwanda Show Room, and called on the organizers to ensure they have enough stock of all the items that will be required.
Apparently Rwanda peacekeeping forces serving United Nations African Union Hybrid Mission in Darfur (UNAMID) last week also launched Quick Impact Projects (QIP) for the local communities in the area of Korma, North Darfur.
