Nyabihu School for the Deaf

Founded in 2013, Nyabihu School for Deaf Children has been a beacon of hope and educational excellence for deaf children in the region. Our school was established with a vision to create a nurturing and inclusive learning environment that caters specifically to the needs of deaf children and becoming a place where every deaf child has the opportunity to access quality education and develop the skills necessary to lead fulfilling, independent lives


Our school was founded by an extraordinary individual, Mr. Louis NGABONZIZA, who possessed a deep passion for teaching and a strong commitment to serving the deaf community. Mr. Louis, himself a gifted teacher of the deaf, recognized the immense potential and untapped talent within deaf children. With a tireless determination, he dedicated his life to providing equal opportunities and quality education to this underserved population.


Over the years, Nyabihu School for Deaf Children has achieved several significant milestones. We take pride in our accomplishments, as they reflect our unwavering commitment to the betterment of deaf education:

1. Opening the Doors:

In 2013, our school opened its doors to its first batch of students, welcoming them to a supportive and inclusive learning environment. It marked the beginning of a transformative journey that would impact the lives of countless deaf children.

2. Construction of Facilities:

At the start, we were renting school facilities but five years with the generous support of partner organizations and individual supporters we were able to build our own premises to create an optimal learning environment. From providing well-equipped classrooms to providing spaces for extra-curricular activities, we strive to meet the unique needs of our students.

3. Accreditation and Recognition:

Through our dedication to high-quality education, we have received accreditation and recognition from relevant educational authorities in Rwanda. These accomplishments serve as a testament to the hard work and dedication of our staff and the significant impact we have made in the field of deaf education.

4. Community Outreach:

We firmly believe in the power of community engagement and raising awareness about the rights and abilities of deaf individuals. Our school actively participates in community outreach programs, organizing workshops, seminars, and events to promote inclusion and equal opportunities for deaf children.

Honoring Our Founder:

Sadly, our passionate founder, Mr. Louis, passed away last year, leaving behind a remarkable legacy and a school that continues to flourish under his guiding principles. His unwavering dedication and relentless pursuit of excellence will forever remain an inspiration for all who are a part of our school community.

Moving Forward:

As we embark on this journey without our beloved founder, we remain committed to upholding his vision and values. We strive to maintain the high standards of education, exceptional care, and support that he instilled in the foundations of our school.

We invite you to join us in honoring Mr. Louis’s legacy by being a part of Nyabihu School for Deaf Children. Together, we can continue to provide transformative education and empower deaf children to reach their fullest potential.
