I presently work in UAE as a Medical Laboratory technologist. But the cost of living and raising a family here is outrageous.I am a nigerian seeking a peaceful,safe country in Africa to live, work and possibly invest later on..in agriculture and the health sector.Checking online rwanda popped up as one of the safest countries in the world. Can you please guide me and give me more information that can help me...Thank you
