Campus Life

The base is located near the airport on a busy side street called Samuduha. We are a motorcycle taxi ride away from downtown Kigali and walking distance from small shops that sell everyday items. You can find people making and selling chapati, chips, samosas and other street food right outside the base’s gate. 

Base Functions 

The entire staff and students meet in the main hall twice a week for worship on Monday morning and intercession on Wednesday afternoon each for one hour. Throughout the week individual departments meet and once a month the entire staff meet all together.
