English and French are also widely spoken. Rwanda’s population is very young; over half (52%) are under 15 years old and only 5% are over 65 years old.

Rwanda has a highly educated population with literacy rates at 88%, one of the highest in sub-Saharan Africa. Although primary education is free and compulsory until age 12, secondary education remains out of reach for many due to poverty. In terms of religion, Christianity dominates at 56%, with Roman Catholics making up 50% followed by Protestantism at 6%. Islam is practiced by 2% of the population, traditional religions practiced by 38%, and other religions practiced by 4%. See ejinhua for Rwanda Population and Language.
