A Rwandan plumber who received the inaugural scholarship from the World Plumbing Council and United Association for training instructors in developing nations is setting an example for future beneficiaries to follow.
Jean Claude Twagirimana, the recipient of the World Plumbing Council United Association Instructor Training Program Scholarship for Trainers from Developing Countries, took what he learned from his two-week visit to the United States last summer and helped start the Rwanda Plumbers Organization.
Now a confirmed member of the WPC, the RPO’s goals are to promote advanced education and training in plumbing through the development of a plumbing code, training curriculum and capacity building for plumbers and water users on water use efficiency.
