Prof. Cecilia said that she decided to start a social enterprise as she saw social enterprising to be the only method to eradicate extreme poverty.
The visit of three days from 17th to 19th August 2017, Prof Cecile Oman exchanged with INES management on Human Rights and Science and how INES can play part in boosting this innovation.
During the exchange the Rector of INES-Ruhengeri, Fr. Dr. Fabien HAGENIMANA explained well how INES as institute of applied sciences has a will and facilities to promote Human Rights and Science. “INES is already playing a big role in promoting science through applied research we are involved in” He said.
“I wanted my social enterprise Human Rights and Science (HR&S) to represent the new generation of collaboration between non-OECD countries and OECD countries. I wanted the non-OECD country institutions to collaborate with the Aid institutions in a much better way, still benefitting from the OECD country interests to eradicate extreme poverty, reduce poverty in general and prevent forced migration.
The new generation of collaboration shall benefit from; financial resources of the OECD countries, modern technical solutions and communication tools, quality physical infrastructure, quality management skills and quality educational systems. In the new generation of collaboration the partnership shall be equal partnership and both sides contribute and benefit equally, in a transparent and efficient manner.
The only way to overcome the above, according to me, is to establish social enterprises. All the talents in all countries are provided with the opportunities to develop and implement products and services for the benefit of the population in the country they operate.” She said
