A satellite service provided by SpaceX will be piloted in 500 schools in Rwanda after its launch on the 22nd of February. The project is part of a larger initiative to provide high-speed internet access to underserved areas in the country.

It is expected that students and teachers in Rwanda will be able to access educational resources and digital tools thanks to Elon Musk's high-speed satellite internet venture. This will play a big role in improving education, especially for a school like this that is not connected to reliable internet.

Starlink is a satellite internet service that uses a low-Earth orbit satellite network to provide high-speed internet access to areas with limited or no connectivity. The service has the potential to bring reliable and high-speed internet to rural and remote areas, making it a valuable tool for improving education, healthcare, and economic opportunities in underserved communities.

Currently, there are 6,756 schools, consisting of primary, secondary and TVET schools, in the country. The Rwandan government is hoping to reduce these numbers after the launch of Starlink Internet.
