Irembo is an eGovernment portal which enables the access and provision of government services in Rwanda. In less than 2 years since its launch (Service Go Live) Irembo now hosts over 49 e-services deriving from 9 different government agencies with more than 100,000 transactions a month. With the awareness building each day, Irembo has also set out to harness the existing ecosystem (Telcos, Infrastructure, Human resources, payment gateways, etc...) by increasing its number of payment channels, access points & field agents, as well as its overall user rate.
The portal is designed to improve the citizen’s way of life by making government services easier, faster and less costly to access. That being said as an enabler of ICT, Irembo has also been able to create numerous employment opportunities for the public.
Irembo plans to increase the amount of eServices accessible to citizens to over 100 services by the end of 2017, and to increase our nationwide access points to get even closer to each citizen in the country. To re-engineer government services so to compliment the paperless and cashless economy that our country is striving towards. Expand from product to platform enabling an innovation ecosystem where Rwanda’s youth can play a big part in the digital transformation of this country. The future is digital, and Irembo plans to continue its journey on this path.
