Nyabihu School for the Deaf

Where is our School?

Kigali is the capital of Rwanda. Our school, is located 23km Kilometres south west of Musanze (also called Ruhengeli) in the Western Province of Rwanda.

If you are visiting Rwanda, you will probably fly in to Kigali. From there, you can take a bus or hire a car, and you will be in Musanze in two hours.  Musanze is a famous holiday destination. You will find us on the main Musanze to Rubavu (also called Gisenyi) road (RN4) just before you arrive in Mukamira.

On this website you will find information about our school and the life of the children.
