Our Projects


Ecole Du Bon Berger (EBB)

Founded in January 2017, the school is the Group’s first venture. It offers a multilingual and quality education and is built on the principles of empowerment, social diversity and well-being. About 20% of the current 900 pupils at EBB are supported mainly through the school’s revenue.
The EBB’s strategic investment structure allows pupils from truly diverse social backgrounds to access high quality yet affordable private education.

The new school Ècole Du Bon Berger

With EBB’s population projected to grow to 1000 pupils in 2024, the Group plans to widen its impact by franchising the proven ‘EBB model’ across Rwanda and the region.

Good Food Mpore Training Center (GFMC).

While managing the organic growth of EBB, the group is planning the incorporation of a catering company known as the Good Food Company. The GFMC will run the existing bakery which currently sells its daily bread and pastries to the school and neighbours of the school.

Inside its future premises at the EBB campus, the GFMC’s new multipurpose hall will host the school’s canteen during the week, and other festive or meeting events over the week-end and during school holidays

The new modern kitchen will have the capacity for the preparation of breakfast and lunch meals for 1’000 pupils and staff members every day. The canteen will only serve food that is locally grown and organically produced.
The meals will be prepared and served by trainees under the supervision of professional staff through the GFC vocational training programme for unemployed adults. The same staff members will serve during the several events hosted at the GFC hall and external engagements through its catering service. The new international airport presents a immense opportunity for the GFC.
