Pearson Official Launch in Rwanda

Saturday, August 13, 2011

On Thursday Agust 11, Pearson's official launch took place in hotel des Mille Colline in Kigali. Pearson is one of the leading educational publishers worldwide and the event celebrated new and existing partnerships in Rwanda.

As Pearson's exclusive distributing agency, Drakkar hosted this special event by inviting our clients, government representatives and other important players in the education sector. At the same time, it was a moment to celebrate the succesfull distribution of over half a million Pearson books into primary and secondary public schools earlier this year.

It was a wonderful afternoon full of information about Pearson books & services, experiences shared by teachers and even a performance by two students of St Famille school which has been using Pearson books.

Mr Erasme Rwanamiza was present on behalf of the Ministry of Education and shared his view on educational development with the audience. After the launch, people mingled with a drink in the lobby of Mille Collines and exchanged ideas on how to work with Drakkar and Pearson to improve quality of education in Rwanda.

We would like to thank everyone for joining us at this event and look forward to continue working together!
