Ecole Maternelle Saint Ignace(EMSI)

On the 25 th  October 2021, The Jesuits of the Rwanda-Burundi Region opened Ecole Maternelle Saint Ignace. in Kibagabaga, Kigali. This nursery school is added to the Saint Ignatius Schools Complex. The aim is to further contribute to the education of Rwandan children. As Jesuit education, the new school will promote the culture of excellence and care for others, starting from an early age.

This whole school complex is composed of a primary that started in 2008, secondary that opened in 2012 and kindergarten that just opened its doors. As the parents increased their appreciation to the Jesuit education, they expressed their deepest desire for a nursery school that offers them an opportunity for their  children of different ages to be on the same
campus. Besides quality education of the hearts and minds offered by the Jesuits, having ones children in the same campus offers an added advantage on transportation
and monitoring of children, as stated by one of the parents.

The school started with three class levels, that is year 1 to year 3, with two classes for each level. A number of around 190 little boys and girls showed up on the first day of
the school and added smiles to our campus. The smallest among them are still distressed by the separation from their parents, but the school offers them a comforting environment. The entire population is expected to be around 300 kids when the project
is fully completed.

The Jesuits of Rwanda-Burundi Region are deeply grateful to all who supported and continue to support this growing project. Above all, we are very grateful for the new opportunity to serve the community by taking care of the little ones who grow to become
good children of God as well as creative and innovative global citizens.
