For nearly 30 years, the German state of Rhineland Palatinate – where U.S. Army Garrison Kaiserslautern and Ramstein Air Base are located – has had a partnership with Rwanda. Rwandan’s native language is Kinyarwanda but since colonial times they learned French.
During the 1994 genocide, Rwanda’s people suffered heavily. Since then, the country underwent significant development efforts – to include adopting English as a new official language. In 2008, English replaced French in Rwandan schools.
