One of Africa’s smallest countries, Rwanda is located in East and Central Africa between Uganda, Tanzania, Burundi and the DRC. With a young and predominantly rural population, Rwanda has seen strong economic growth over the past two decades but remains a least developed country. This is largely down to Rwanda’s troubled history, with the Rwandan civil war starting in 1990 and culminating in the Rwandan Genocide, in which as many as 1 million people were killed over the course of 100 days.
