About Us

The Rwanda Institute for Conservation Agriculture (RICA) is a unique English-language institution dedicated to educating the next generation of Rwandan and East African agricultural leaders. Our mission is to develop skills of promising youth who will seed innovations in agriculture that empower smallholder farmers and scale agribusinesses to maximize food produced by Rwandans for Rwandans. We seek the country’s best and brightest students to earn a Bachelor of Science degree in Conservation Agriculture through our three-year experiential learning program. RICA is a public-private partnership with the Government of Rwanda, which supplied the land and ministerial support to develop this world-class institution. RICA’s campus, located in Bugesera in the Eastern Province, and first five years of operations are made possible through the generous funding of the Howard G. Buffett Foundation.
