The study's objective is to determine what role the project's design played in achieving its objectives. The research's main objectives were to ascertain the relationship between project planning and the achievement of project goals, investigate the factors that cause the majority of planned projects to fall short of their objectives in terms of time and money, and suggest the best practices that can make planned projects successful. A combination of quantitative and qualitative methods was used in the design of this study. 158 employees working in the education sector in the Kirehe region made up the study's population, from which a sample size of 133 was determined using Slovene's approach. The information was gathered by answering questions and an interview, and means and standard deviation were utilized to analyze it. Multiple regression analysis was used to test the research's hypotheses. A favorable association was identified using regression analysis (R = 953).In this research it has been discovered that project design has contributed to the achievement of One Laptop per child goals in Kirehe district. The findings indicate that the goals of the project have been defined in advance, there is risk identification strategy of the project and creation of contingency plan. Even, though the research indicated that project design contributed to the achievement of One Laptop per Child goals, there have been short comings of the research, thus research recommends the government of Rwanda to strengthen the refining of project strategy and project risk identification since both have shown weak influence on the achievement of One Laptop per Child goals.
