a case study about 
Education 
in Rwanda

Mother Mary School Complex is an affordable non-denominational private school offering a high-quality education to more than 350 kindergarten, primary and secondary students in Kigali, Rwanda. Teaching from the national curriculum, the school started in 2005 with 23 students. After the government-imposed, nation-wide change to English as the official language of instruction in schools in 2008, Mother Mary implemented the Cambridge International curriculum. The Cambridge curriculum supports Mother Mary in its provision of a high quality and unique educational opportunity for local Rwandan students, and is the tool Mother Mary uses to contribute to the rebuilding of local skills destroyed as a result of the 1994 genocide. SIFEM invested in Business Partners International East Africa (BPI EA), an investment vehicle providing risk finance to small companies in Kenya, Rwanda, and Uganda. BPI EA provided finance to Mother Mary in 2017, supporting Mother Mary in the improvement of its facilities.
