Bright School Campaign


This campaign is focused on constructing Phase 1 of our new campus. 

We're thrilled to announce that construction has started on Phase 1 of Bright School! This building will house 8 classrooms. The building will be Bright School's first permanent home, and is much awaited by children, parents, and teachers. This facility will attract more than 1,000 visitors each year from around the world. It is one of two schools in Rwanda that meet our high standards for modern, engaging education.

Perimeter Fence NEED

One remaining requirement that we are now raising funds for is a perimeter fence in order to keep children away from the road on which the school is located.  Please consider donating to the safety of the children as well as the privacy of the school.  These two objectives are of primary importance to us as we look forward to relocating our students to their new classrooms in the new building very soon.

Help Build a Fence

Bright School began in Muhanga, Rwanda, when Louise Batamuriza, a Rwandan teacher, set up a preschool class in a rented house with just one box of 24 crayons. Louise called Jan Brown, an early childhood educator Louise had worked with in the USA, to “Come help!” With that, TEACH Rwanda was born in early 2012.


TEACH Rwanda now operates four bustling preschool classes as well as Primary 1 & 2 and 3  (first through third grades) at Bright School. Children from all walks of life attend, from the wealthy to the most vulnerable. Children read books, write original stories in their journals, solve math problems when they build with blocks, and discover scientific principles when they play in sand and water. Education officials and organizations are amazed to see children at Bright write stories at an age when most children in Rwanda are still learning to spell their names.
