Our Impact

 

Kepler graduates enter the world of work as effective professionals. Many of our students are the first in their family to have a formal job. Our robust internship program prepares them with the professional skills and the confidence needed to build a fulfilling career in the formal sector. Often our students have job offers before they finish their studies.

The impact of meaningful and steady employment goes beyond the individual. Many Kepler graduates support family members by paying for education expenses and other needs. Graduates also become role models in their communities who see the direct impact of higher education.

Kepler is committed to sharing what we learn with the broader higher education community in Rwanda and East Africa. We work with other institutions to help them strengthen their employment outcomes through rigorous professional skills training. Kepler’s example continues to increase interest in cutting-edge pedagogical approaches such as blended learning, student-centered learning, and competency-based learning.

The Kepler program has had significant impacts on their students’ critical thinking, cognitive skills, English language skills, and computer literacy relative to universities in the control group.
