Abstract: Projects remain the instruments of choice for policy makers in international development. Yet, paradoxically, the poor success of projects seems to have become the rule and not the exception in contemporary reality. The general objective of this research was assessed the effect of project employee competencies on the implementation of agriculture projects in Rwanda. Some agriculture project in Rwanda are still facing the problem of incompetence staff, lack of managerial skills and more people works in those project does not have enough knowledge. This study was adopted descriptive research design to get results expected from this study. Thus, the research design was focused on qualitative approach, but also quantitative approach was used to establish relationship between variables using inferential statistics. Target population refers to the group of people or study subjects who are similar in one or more ways and which form the subject of the study in a particular survey. For the purpose of this work, the researcher target is 115 populations. A sample size is 89. This study was used descriptive research study. The researcher has used randomly sampling method as these enabled the researcher to select respondents who provided researcher with the information needed for the study. Questionnaires instrument was used to collect data. Before analyzing the data, first errors was identified and eliminated as far as this was immediately affect administering of questionnaires in order to guard against omission. Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS) was used to analyze data after collecting them in this study. Knowledge, employee skills and training influence implementation of agriculture project at 87.9 % to rural income through exports (PRICE). This is as given by the R square value of 0.879. The adjusted R square value is 0.805 which shows that the study result is 80.5 %, this show the reliability of the study. ANOVA results further show that knowledge, employee skills and training influenced the implementation of agriculture project. The sig value (0.000) less than the level significance (0.05). The F-statistics (F=214.145) is far greater than the P-value (0.000). Further, Tables 4.8 indicates that the residual value (2.202) is less than the regression value (21.930) which means that all independent variables contributed to the implementation of the implementation of rural income through exports (price). The present study examined the effect of project employee competencies on the implementation of agriculture projects in Rwanda. It further presents that the project implementation is signicantly determined by knowledge, employee skills and training. The study concluded that a significant number of employees working with PRICE project were highly experienced in project implementation. Researcher recommended that knowledge, employee Skills and training should not only be sufficient, but influence the project implementation of rural area. It is advised that the crafters of the budget should address the requirements for Agricultural projects implementation.
