Mrs. Nibasumba mentioned that the incubation and acceleration center of the University of Burundi (CINAUB), organized awareness sessions for young academics, for the strengthening of entrepreneurial activities, with the aim of exchanging how they can change the way they think, adding that entrepreneurship is the key to arriving at Burundi’s vision.

She added that even challenges can become a solution to problems arising from job search. Young Burundians are called upon to think about income-generating activities.
