Communaute Diocesses Abaja Ba Kristo
Rubengera Technical Secondary School, set into the verdant landscape of Western Rwanda’s Kibuye province, is a vocational technical school specialising in carpentry. The school, led by the sisters of Abaja ba Kristo, in co-operation with the German DGD Foundation has ambitious plans to grow and expand its facilities to many more young Rwandese.
In the four years since its inception it has established a name as one of the best carpentry schools in Rwanda. FCBStudios is working together with the school to develop a masterplan illustrating their vision for the new school facilities, including future workshops, classrooms, a kitchen and refectory, dormitories, a business hub, and a polytechnic.
Architect Tim Burton visited the school in 2017. Read his report on the progress being made on site 'Cooking up a Storm'
