Hope from Rwanda?

Kagame's government has lifted one million Rwandans out of poverty in the past five years, with poverty rates declining from 56.7% in 2005/6 to 44.9 percent in 2010/11, surpassing the target of 46% end of this year. What's more inequality between rich and poor Rwandans has been narrowing with improvement in health conditions among other indicators. These stunning results have come through a wide range of policies including increased agricultural production, agri-business, farm wage employment, increased off-farm jobs, increased diaspora remittance, as well as improvements in basic infrastructure such as roads and electricity.
