Development through Transport 2006-05-10

Rwanda, in contrast to Uganda, is much more developed. Through the World Bank, International Monetary Fund, and various other international bodies, Rwanda has made significant improvements to its infrastructure. As you drive through the country, you notice the vast structural improvements to their roads and buildings. Rwanda has made such significant infrastructural and security improvements since the genocide, that today, Rwanda is considered the safest and one of the fastest growing economies in Africa. The image aboves displays the vast paved and lined roads that run even through some of these tiny villages! It is quite a contrast witnessing European style roads disecting poverty-torn rural communities.
