“I can’t go out and plant a million trees, but I can go out and tell students to plant 10 each. Sometimes you need to ask yourself what exactly do you want- a grove or a forest?”

Welcome to our community:

We believe that bottom-up innovation is the key to development and the creation of a better future for Rwanda and for the world.  We are passionate about bringing together entrepreneurs, creatives, and all drivers of positive social change. We envision Impact Hub Kigali as the center of the social enterprise community in Kigali. With premier community workspace and countless events and facilitated connections, we believe we will all become greater than our collective individual parts.
